Words Video Installation
I made a movie of my installation “Words” at the historical Dole Mansion at Crystal Lake, Illinois. The Words exhibit was an invitation to listen to each other. The movie is displayed in a gold bronze frame I created.
The movie shows the installation and the audio. The installation was of floating transparent spheres that represented words. To me words carry the weight of the meaning intended for them when they are spoken. Their meaning however is lost and they become weightless if they are not heard by another person. So I designed an installation piece consisting of weightless spheres that symbolize these spoken but unheard words floating in the sky.
The audio part consisted of words themselves which were responses to some personal questions. They are monologues accompanying the fabric spheres dance.
