Audio chips, microcontroller, projections.
These works deal with the difficulty of discerning evil, with mixed intentions,
with good resulting from bad.
Images are accompanied by spoken texts heard through headphones; viewers’ actions activate the pieces, which then project images onto small rear-projection screens built into the sculptures, changing pictures in conjunction with the text. Two of the present pieces consider moral ambiguities around gangster Al Capone, while the third ponders the roots of the Littleton, Colorado massacre in “the unreality of the real.”
I am continuing this series of work; additional pieces may be added to the group as they are constructed. Improvements in sound quality have been effected since the videotaping of the artworks.
The sculptures run on batteries; a room with low light level is the only technical requirement.
