when rainbows become bowrain...



my exhibition at pomona college, when words become forms, will close on december 19. because of the scale of bowrain - a large installation work, this might be your only chance to experience it for a long while... the sound, sculpture, and hand drawn films that make up the piece, were all birthed from a tiny notational sketch by buckminster fuller. fuller's drawing was used as a score towards most of the compositional decisions within the piece. all of the footage is in "real time", and the images of just the films are the actual projection footage...

for those of you who think an embedded video means i'm going to start performing with a laptop, never fear, it took me a number of frustrating hours to export the video without it looking like a broken old scoreboard... needless to say, videos will most likely NOT occur here on a regular basis.

nonetheless, i'm hoping the video will enable the far away folks to see/hear a bit of what i did on my summer "vacation", and for those of you who are local, perhaps it will inspire you to take the drive out to pomona... and if you do, don't miss the incredible bas jan ader show nearby.

hi, while not as good as being there, this is a wondrous thing to see. the size of the installation, changes in colour and beautiful sounds. varied perspectives give some indication of what it would have been like to move around the space. thanks.
