Old Ways Won’t Open New Doors

About the Wayfinding Installation built by Raphael Arar : This participatory installation includes a set of four electromechanical sculptures that operate in subsequent harmony and discord based on audience, performer and/or environmental impulses. Each sculpture, positioned at a Cardinal Direction, operates independently by way of a motor that strikes tensed bungee cables containing a glass orb with a glass marble. In effect, both movement and sound ensue, the latter continuously amplified by digital effects. Software manipulates and morphs the sequence at which the sculptures fire, inviting both the environment along with the participant to meddle with a sense of direction amidst time.

Glass Will Break and Pain Will Stain

Glass Will Break and Pain Will Stain was a fragmentation of reality - the crashing down of invisible glass barriers that exist within us - and a celebration of the pain that accompanies the process of growth. The fragile nature of our basic human nature combined with the sharp edges of known dimensions. Shattering in a pattern that vibrated through the eyes and ears into the bleeding hearts of the audience, absorbing our commonalities in the negative space that is often overlooked.
