Incisions in the gallery wall. Installed in the Belkin Gallery for As Seen Here. Read Kristen Carter’s essay on this work, Neither Here nor There.
Alphabet Primer U (You) W (Double You) X (Ex) is an installation consisting of three individual works.
The installation Ursa Minor consists of seven light fixtures hung from the ceiling. Each fixture is a porcelain socket suspended from and powered by flexible lamp wiring, and holding a low wattage bare G-lamp (globe shapes light bulb). The fixtures are hung to create a three-dimensional model of the constellation Ursa Minor (commonly known as the little dipper)
The arrangement of lights is only readable as the named constellations from a single vantage point, about sixteen feet from the front most lamp. The viewer however, is able to see the work in full 360 degree view. In this way the viewer’s position disorients the arrangement of light, causing the configuration to appear to change as the persons position changes.
