Site specific installation (2nd floor backroom and backyard)
Concept: This installation attempts to juxtapose an historical environment with the political disparity found in consumerism and warfare. The work highlights the connection to the site's military background, while fragmenting the modern day struggle surrounding the concept of land and environment we live in. Broken mirrors (found objects) with arial projections and maps of Governors Island fill the room, and an auxiliary piece in the backyard captures sunrays that reflects into the backroom.
Participate: By incorporating environmental projections that appear constantly in motion and engaged with individuals in the installation space by projecting on all surfaces, instead of the traditional media 4:3 box. This piece aims to reverse the consumer role by reflecting and refracting the viewer's movement and physical presence. Viewers essentially become imbedded in the work through timelapse recordings.
