And thus you too, my dear, see magnetic man while he is still bound to the body and thus to the world of the senses, emerging with extended antennae into another world of which he will be your witness.
Justinus Kerner, Die Seherin von Prevorst, 1829
buddha’s lightbulb (stereo speaker placement) and music of the spheres (4 stereo speaker installation with sculpture) were two installations created in collaboration with Wesley Mulvin for this group exhibition.
we are not alone is a multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach to installation that is evocative rather than instructive. Six artists, Emily Goodden, Susan Hawkins, leannej, Wesley Mulvin, my name is scot, and Frances Zorn created a space to accommodate shifting relationships between diverse works where the non-linear, non-unified nature of experience is acknowledged. Whether as a fragment or a fully-formed story, narrative is inherent in the configuration of sculpture, music, text, and still and moving images the artists presented.
