Magic Lanterns
This sculpture attempts to recreate the sense of wonder experienced by audiences of Victorian era magic lantern shows. I’ve used a combination of micro electronic components and provisional mechanics, all of which is plainly visible. Each of the five projectors creates a moving image on the wall in front of the sculpture: the common woodpeckers of Ontario, pecking away at invisible trees. Playful and crude, yet complex, I think of this piece as a sculptural GIF.
