“Wunderkammer” at Kinetica Art Fair 2014.
A collection of temporary concepts, ideas, and physical materials, including light, that presents the viewer with a whole work that may (must?) be broken down into smaller and smaller parts. It has a shattered narrative; a broken temporal and physical state that is both animated and still at the same time.
The sculpture was created on-site and then video added on using my Painting With Light software.
The wall text that is displayed alongside the work:
This is a video sculpture: physical objects, both found and constructed, overlaid with video that has been manipulated with software to precisely match the physical shape, creating a symbiotic artwork.
This installation can be taken as a whole and as a mini-exhibition of new and previous works.
It’s structure is arranged roughly following a line from the center of Earth into space: core, earth/water, surface, air, and space.
A key theme of the work is impermanence; both in the materials used (cardboard, light, software), and the uneasy relationship humankind has to our home.
Because of the transitory nature of the materials and construction, this work may also be considered as performance, which is alluded to by the inclusion of a scaled version of a previous performance, including the artist of the piece, now mapped back into his own work.
