Installation dimensions variable
Walking into this installation, you enter into some kind of mechanism, engaged in an unknown and ceaseless process.
It moves along methodically, unhurried and precise.
There is a sound and then the lack of sound, and you become aware of your hearing. There is light and then there is complete darkness. A few chairs offer a place to sit. For the viewer, this mechanism becomes a laboratory, a machine, for distilling their attention.
Additional Details and Description:
Four separate "events" are happening in a medium to large sized room.
1. A device on the wall is dropping small empty gas cylinders onto the floor
2. A light mounted on the floor in the center of the room and pointing straight up comes on for a few seconds and then shuts off.
3. A small spray head, mounted in the ceiling above the light, emits a jet of mist towards the light.
4. A bell rings in the distance (outside of the room).
Each event happens periodically, separate from the others. For instance, event#1 happens every 33seconds, event#2 happens every 37seconds, etc. Thus, the events are constantly changing their temporal relationship to each other. Besides the installation, the room is otherwise empty, dark and completely silent.
