Kenyon College

Claudia Esslinger: Host

January 16, 2015–February 15, 2015  [+]

Host uses custom electronic media to interpret our relationship to the natural world.  How do current technologies redefine this relationship? How do our inventions impact our survival?  In this project, optical panels reveal and obscure an abstracted vision of the sublime, while at the same time using electronic controls to question its disappearance. The structure becomes a metaphor for a fragmented experience of our environment. Through a mediator of our own making we can gather, frame, focus or delete our perceptions.


On view January 16 – February 15.
