2011,12,09-2012,01,07 – the Art Space, Huntsville
This was an evolving show. It began with the NETTT constructed in the middle of the room which connected Consciousness (which was created for the Harvest Fest. 2011) to Master Controllo (HEGPBTRFCU, which began at the Arrowhead Show, and appeared in the OOZE..), thereby connecting consciousness to intention through a non-linear network(1). In the recessed area was a MEGAPAINTING which was a single painting made from almost all of the watercolours from last year’s show, the OOZE.. (it’s amazing that the paintings fit the space almost exactly, I didn’t have to do anything). Over the course of the show I performed two experiments on the walls on either side of the NETTT: 1) I shone a light through it and traced the shadows on the concrete wall using strips of bond paper and mac-tac and then illuminated it with black light. 2) On the other wall I attached short strips of red and blue poster board to create a drawing, two trees. The idea behind the drawing was to have two centers out of which emanated a network of branches, one red, one blue. They were intended to ‘grow’ into each other, filling all of the wall space (I plan on making another attempt at this idea some time in the future – as you can see I was only able to get so far). In Escape Plan you see a superimposition of the NETTT (illuminated by black light) over top of the two trees maze.
During both the opening and closing I played music that I was working on at the time. All of this is presented here.
(1) Originally I stated it was essence. Now I prefer intention or will – a vehicle for control.
