Revised Maps of the Present
My current work-in-progress, Revised Maps of the Present, is an installation that moves beyond the two-dimensional canvas into a space that combines painted walls, sculptured figures, lights, sounds and video projections to create what appears to be an urban landscape but actually unfolds into a labyrinth of warping angles, shifting perspectives and hidden spacial dimensions. As onlookers walk into the scene, they experience the layers of this imagined reality disconnect in the form of a kaleidoscopic multiverse.
My goal with this project is to provide a public display that inspires people to think about the nature of reality, and consider many possible interpretations and perspectives.
Below is a video of a model for this installation. The life-size version, when built, will be a walk-through, interactive experience.
