Installations Installations Installations

Continuing a series of projects exploring how memory is constructed, contained, and altered in space, Rice’s video installation organizes a network of cameras, screens, and lighting elements throughout Suyama Space. The cameras, each animated by a unique mechanical device, open up different ways of moving through and seeing spaces, surfaces, and frames created by the gallery’s architecture.

Further exploring the building, cameras look beyond the main floor to the less visible work spaces and storage areas below, drawing together videos of the gallery with scenes of the tools, materials, and models used by the architecture studio. The installation works as a mechanism for both creating and viewing images, and thus emulates the functions of Suyama Space: a studio and a gallery, a site of production and presentation.

This project is supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.
