Subject of Experience
gold leaf foil, mirror, cast glass and steel - 7' x 20' x 80'

Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, Kansas City, Missouri











The installation Subject of Experience is centered around the sensual limits of experience. Throughout the space gold leaf foil hangs from steel bars on top of tripods. As an individual pushes through the space the delicate gold foil reacts to the action, translating the unseen into a visually perceptual moment. In the center of the space a ring of mirrors creates a chamber, which separates the two spaces. Outside the chamber we are physically a part of the work, but within this space our connection is purely visual.
