Tracing a Circle Cranking a State (2016) (Video projection, duration 7:22 minutes, kinetic sculpture, fabric, wood) This work was projected in the window of READ Bookstore as part of Lindsay Pomerantz’s series After Hours. Influenced by Roger Caillois book Man, Play, and Games (1961) the work took Caillois idea of illinx (the Greek word for whirlpool) or vertigo to document a sculptural apparatus that would induce a therapeutic experience. To approximate the experience of the participants a GoPro camera was mounted to a drill to capture the staged event. Participants cycle through spinning a large painting, rotating a crate, or documenting the scene. Click to read text by Lindsay Pomerantz Here
