Blindsight, Boston Sculptors Gallery, June 10 – July 19, 2015
Collaboration with moving image artist Sarah Bliss: an immersive, four-channel sculptural video and sound installation
Wild, raw, mysterious and sensual, Blindsight revels in the deep, unconscious dimensions of our lives. Reimagining the Daedalus-Icarus myth, this installation looks fearlessly at time and the aging body; the Eros in all relationships; the dialogical, embodied nature of perception; and the mutability of matter.
Blindsight’s open, maze-like structure, inspired by Daedalus’ labyrinth, is made of translucent and reflective materials that receive four channels of moving images. Visitors journey through a liminal underworld that unfolds in dream-time: simultaneous, multiple and fragmented. The soundscape is stultifera navis by Scottish sound artist James Wyness.
