Portals                       2008

 

Thirty glass globes are disbursed throughout the gallery in clusters of three. Each globe contains a speaker and an small led light. The speakers emit sounds and the leds light up in response to the volume of the sounds.

Each pod is broadcasting a different sound. The sounds have been gathered by thirty different participating collaborators. The collaborators were instructed to gather sounds from their everyday lives.

In theory, thirty viewers could be simultaneously having thirty different auditory experiences from the lives of thirty collaborators.

Self                                           2008

 

This piece consists of a seven foot cube constructed of steel and two-way mirror. The lighting is constantly changing. When the lights outside the cube are on, the lights inside the cube are off. As the outside lights dim, the interior lights brighten and vice versa.

If the viewer is inside the cube when the exterior lights are on, he/she can see through the mirror and into the gallery. This viewer can see other people outside the cube (who can't see in). When the lights shift and the interior becomes lit, the viewer only sees themselves reflected infinitely in the mirrors.

If the viewer is outside the cube when the exterior lights are on, he/she sees the gallery reflected in the cube. When the lights shift and the interior becomes lit, the viewer sees into the cube including any viewer on the inside (who can't see out).

Point of View         2008

 

A seven foot diameter geodesic sphere has an interior light that is wired to a switch. The switch is actuated when the viewer (viewer A) picks up a helmet hanging on the outside of the structure.

The helmet has a camera mounted on the front. As the viewer experiences the inside of the sphere, everything he/she looks at is projected, from two directions, onto the outside of the sphere. Other viewers in the gallery have the experience of seeing what "Viewer A" is seeing only it is distorted by the fidelity of the camera and irregular surface it is being projected upon.
