'Deep Walls' by Scott Snibbe, 2003
The works are diverse in both form and function, each of the ten works situated within the 10,000-square-foot exhibition space was designed to constructively respond to the physical presence of visitors. There is a table that speaks when touched (Janet Cardiff, To Touch, 1994), a floor of projected, colorful forms that reconfigure in the wake of passing visitors (Brian Knep, Healing Pool, 2008), and walls of painterly projections that respond to “brushstrokes” of human movement (Camille Utterback, External Measures 2003, 2003; Untitled 5, 2004; Untitled 6, 2005). Liz Phillips contributes a room of responsive neon lights and synthesized sound (Echo Evolution, 1999), while Daniel Rozin‘s Peg Mirror (2007) and Snow Mirror (2005) configure and reflect captivating portraits. Scott Snibbe‘s Boundary Functions (1998) and Deep Walls (2003) bring visitors together in works that require more than one participant.
