Cloud Walker. 2008. 18 color film transparencies with audio of wind. Zhou B Center. Chicago
Dancing In And Out Of Frame", "Orange Chicken In The Sky", and "Duck", is from the body of work "Cloud Walker", 2008. This work is an exhibition of color transparencies, suspended in space and placed away from the wall so that projections of the forms and colors of these images are produced on the gallery walls. The work intends to balance the physical image and its projection, through manipulation of placement and lighting.
The hanging film transparencies are 35mm photographs of clouds, un-manipulated and printed to 3ft x 5ft color transparencies. With this work, I went back to primitive ways of reading abstract images: looking up as a child at the cracks of ceilings, and into the infinite space of clouds as an adult. What did people see in these clouds? They saw a dancer, a chicken, a person, an alligator, a bird. All were here, all were acceptable, all were seen. Conclusions drawn depended on who each person was, where they came from, and what they wish themselves to be. Included with this installation was an audio loop of wind. Recorded and mixed by the artist.
