To make models conveying a visceral sense of multi-dimensional being to a Western audience, I worked with local artisans, architects, and a new media laboratory on a sound installation and a series of videosculptures. These glossy cubes of cast transparent resin—“Hypercubes”—house negative space forms taken from my diagrams, whose matte surfaces serve as screens onto which I project layers of video, mapped directly into their shapes, on an ongoing loop. They simulate chunks of space-time erased from the fabric of reality; delicate, powerful gauges designed to reveal the unseen energies present in the same time and space occupied by their viewers. Cultivating this sense in an immersive atmosphere, we created a live-processed sound installation: the rush of traffic dominating the traditional, open-front architecture of our exhibition space was captured and processed digitally, interpreting the noise as layers of alternate energies.
