Originally Presented by VOLUME

The premiere of this work was a part of “Cosm, Organization-Construction, Second Instance,” VOLUME's exhibition of new work by Anja Weiser Flower. Stephanie Cheng Smith will present a live performance within her installation Wednesday evening, the 18th, starting at 8pm. Using light sensors trained on the angled beam illuminating Flower’s work in an otherwise darkened space, Smith will create a sound environment that dynamically responds to the movement of the audience towards, away from, and around this central point of fixation. The installation will be up during regular gallery hours from 12pm to 6pm Wednesday the 18th through the show’s closing on Sunday, April 22nd.
