Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, 2006
Installation. 20 mechanized taxidermy animals. Thinking about the experience of the collapse of time and space into a single point of reality, while calling attention to the paradox of creating such a reality using time-based media… in a space. All four seasons occurred simultaneously with a perpetual dusk and dawn and a lunar cycle of 3 seconds. Lightning filled the clouds, thunder rumbled, you could grab a cup from a dispenser while sliding down a rainbow and wine poured from a nozzle sticking out of the deer’s ribs. Krzysztof Wodiczko slid down the slide and said, “It’s almost too fast!” Perfect. Special thanks to Anna Bojic and Bob Kollar.
