Ka-LIVE-o-scope at Fountain Art Fair
projected over Tiki Disco
This installation was comprised in part by a roughly person-sized sculpture covered in multicolored rag ropes with an illuminated opening in the front. Peering into the opening revealed a mirrored prism which refracted and multiplied a triangular image of the viewer’s eye, nose, lips, fingers, hair, keys, phone screen, business card, flashing toy wand, or whatever else they decided to place in front of the opening. The full effect of the mirrored sculpture was simultaneously projected onto the side of the building behind the DJ booth, occupied that particular evening by Brooklyn’s Tiki Disco. Many interacted with the piece to the rhythm of the music, creating a hypnotizing, live, improvisational analog visualization that passersby could see from five blocks down the street.
