DARK SKIES

MULTI-MEDIA COLLABORATION WITH AXI-OME AND CHRISTOPHER OTTINGER

Dark Skies is a multi-channel projection on large-scale CNC routed tiles. The installation includes an evocative soundscape, drawn primarily from field recordings captured at twilight in the Rocky Mountains during high summer. Dark Skies is an astronomical metaphor that refers to remote places free of hazy city light. It also alludes to uncertain territory, where one's heightened sense of perception extends deep into space and time, offering the promise of new insight. The installation was inspired in part by night sky preservation, the concept of biomimicry and also the complex relationship between natural forms at the micro and macro levels.
