PRANA (march 5 - april 24)
Installation artist Chris Klapper has partnered with electrical engineer Jen Lusker to create an interactive sculptural light installation.
PRANA consists of approximately 2000 hand-cast sphere-like shapes, spanning a 20-foot wall. Using light as its medium, PRANA translates various breathing responses to express the subtle interactions of life in its physical form. The installation utilizes a network of sensors by digital techniques and programmed processes to convey changes in the physical environment and interactions encountered with its audience. During this exchange, breath creates an intimate relationship between the viewer and the piece. PRANA, Sanskrit for “breath,” is responsible for the beating of the heart and bringing life to every cell throughout the circulatory system. The project becomes a statement on the interconnectedness of all things in nature, and in life. It is a sculptural installation constructed into an organic whole. The community and PRANA mutually engage in a physical conversation through both art and technology.
Opening reception march 5 from 6 to 10pm
CAMERA LOCUS 2 (march 5 - april 3)
Since January Julien Gardair has delved into the Invisible Dog’s history, building and vestiges, searching for visual experiences and artifacts. From his exploration of the converted belt factory, the artist will create a site-specific video installation on view in March in the basement. Redrawn by light and shadows through the artist’s intervention, it will become a theater for new stories to be told. With a video projector as the sole source of light, the space will grow into a playground in which photographs, drawings, videos and animations will be displayed. The surrounding visual environment will span from floor to ceiling, immersing the viewer in the experience.
Camera Locus 2 is the second opus of a series initiated last summer at la Graineterie (France). Invited by Sophie Brossais (Supervision), he began to fully explore the relationship between space and moving images.
Opening reception march 5 from 6 to 10pm
