UPRISING is an elaborate network of hand-crafted, trompe l’oeil plumbing that appears to emerge from the floor, walls and ceiling of the century-old building. The historic pipes, carefully hand-crafted by artist Rick Araluce suggest the building’s internal infrastructure has broken from its long-hidden recesses to assert itself, claiming a balance between formalism and something more unruly and chaotic, perhaps even a bit menacing. Sounds recorded within the space are acoustically filtered by composer Steve Peters through the network of pipes, transforming them into abstract drones.
