HIDDEN MEANINGS

Robeson Center Art Gallery, Rutgers University, Newark, NJ
1997

Hidden Meanings, a site-specific installation incorporated a variety of media: painting; on floors and walls and suspended works on paper, a 30-foot suspended PVC pipe sculpture and lighting. A computerized lighting program shifting from combinations of black to incandescent light continually transformed the walls, which were painted with special fluorescent and acrylic paint. This installation poses the question: How do we come to an understanding of the world given the layers of information which color our perception?
