My new and collaborative piece Monocle Chronicle is currently on view at Philadelphia's Space 1026 in a group show entitled "Paradise Now." The second in my series of non-projecting projectors, this one has a new innovative wall-mounted position, in contrast to the table top version. The content and imagery of the self-contained motorized viewer has been provided by Jon Schroeder, along with a wonderful soundtrack, especially composed for the monocle chronicle film/projector piece. The "film" follows the mundane activities of a the street on a sunny day, which quickly dissolve into multi-layer pixel mayhem.
It is uniquely housed in the Space Pod (or mini gallery within a gallery, pictured above) built and curated by Caleb Rogers. More picture from the show are available at the Space 1026 website:
