CROSSING 6:30PM 4/8/2016
This still captures an installation at the Columbus College of Art and Design, Beeler Gallery on April 8, 2016. The subject is one of crossing at the physical point of death, and how it might coincide with what follows. A live male chorus performed an original piece of solemn, but secular music in a dimly lit space. The open echoic space mimicked a cathedral without the religious trappings. An impression of the immense was conveyed by empty white walls and a ceiling that disappears into darkness. There was only one image, an oversized Montana landscape containing a humble road cross; and one object, a set of performance risers along the back wall. The performance occurred only once, and was followed by empty space and the recorded echo of the chorus’ performance.
