The Living Room: a game of looking
April 18, 2015 § Leave a comment
We have a grand, playful set of games in the gallery:
Jenny Hyde’s The Living Room, and
Tobe Harvey’s Phi.
Both works explore ideas, and enable you to look for links between experience.
Jenny’s work is a collection and construction of images from a living room. You can look over her construction as a way of looking and spinning through a space. She has constructed a large wall piece from images printed onto cloth. The cloth has been sew together to make a massive wall piece. The images have been knit together from views in the Living Room. Looking at the images you spin around , investigating the space, and what the room contains.
The images are not placed in a linear structure, but knit, one butting up against the other. They are panoramic images made through knitting. Sometimes we have a bit of vertigo as we look at the whole of the construction. But look at the shoes, and that has grounded us.
Jenny has also provided a set of post cards. These are playing cards to enable you to look at the image for specific objects. You can check off the objects, and Jenny has provided ribbons for you to win. As you fill-out and check off the items you find, you earn discounts on other images in the gallery. You can buy a segment of the larger construction, as an individual print, at a discounted cost.
It’s all great fun. Some of us have gotten a couple of great pieces.
Today we are open from noon to eight.
This afternoon, Carrie Scozzaro sits the space from noon to four.
This evening: Dan McCann is in the space from four to eight.
We know they would love to have folks visit. It’s going to be a delightful day, and warm.
We also know there are loads of folks from around the country and the state for a couple of meetings, and lots of conversations. We invite you to come by and visit our project space.
Come say hi.
