    LCD screens, computer, sandbags, electronic epoxy, clay, 2-channel video in color, looped, no sound, multiple durations

    This multi-layered installation comprised of LCD screens in varying states of deconstruction explores the computer screen's composition of light, glass, and liquid crystal, and their utilization to evince life in digital imagery and computational simulation. Each screen explores a different method and stage of animation, from still-video, to motion-sensitive color changes based on the viewer’s movements. Access to the visibility of each animation depends on the angle of perspective, as one screen will capture the light of the other to reveal itself.
