An Other World

1/6

AN OTHER WORLD (2014) was an interactive immersive installation piece at Machines With Magnets gallery/studio/venue in Pawtucket, RI. Inspired by medieval visions of the afterlife, science-fiction landscapes and more modern/personal struggles with scarcity and depression, this show combined intricate paper-cut scrolls, hanging banners and overhead projections.

 

These visions were “activated” by the viewer’s own shadow and live performances at the opening and closing events- at the opening a three hour ambient performance by Work/Death, at the closing by an improvised performance with the artist manipulating the projections, accompanied by tuba player Dan Schleifer (What Cheer? Brigade) and cellist David Penn (Lists, the Good Good).
