Distraction Cube

New York, NY, USA • 1993

A multimedia installation exhibited at The Storefront for Art & Architecture in Manhattan.

This multimedia installation exhibited at The Storefront for Art & Architecture in Manhattan. Different components are linked together to form a nine foot cube, containing numerous, electronically-triggered light, sound, and fabric devices.

Four illuminated corner entry towers, each nine feet tall and eighteen inches square, serve as gateways to the cube’s interior. In the helical play of light from suspended notational projectors, the in-between "plenum" space becomes activated; first through the ethereal tracings of illuminated figures, then ultimately by the physical presence of the ambulatory participant moving inside the cube.
