I am very excited to announce that a large scale solo exhibit of my piece, WoodEar, will show at Ruffin Gallery from August 29th to October 3rd, 2014. The August 29th opening, which will run on a Final Friday from 5:30 – 7:30, will include live choreography with multiple dancers directed by UVa Choreographer Katie Schetlick. The installation will also include new digital and fixed media pieces with significant contributions by my collaborator, New York-based sculptor and video artist, Jennifer Lauren Smith. The piece will present several large-scale projections in the darkened gallery space, surrounded by 4.1 channels of live sound.
WoodEar was funded with a very generous grant from the UVa Arts Council, which enabled me bring in Jennifer and Katie to collaborate, as well as to purchase a significant amount of technical gear to re-imagine the piece at its largest scale to date.
The Final Friday event is open to the public and will include free hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
