    • Climax Room (2014)

      A couple hours into the Holocenter Farewell Extravaganza (where I had been invited to share some work), my friend Glenn Amico and I noticed an empty room. We learned that the artist who would be featured in that space had been suddenly unable to show up and install his work. I approached curator Jonah Levy at around and said that I had brought along an additional installation in case there was space to show it - but that honestly I would prefer to create a new piece. Jonah said it would probably be quicker to set up what I already had. After trying and failing to hang the paintings for the existing work, and time running out, I decided to just see what we could make in a few hours. We were set up at around 11pm and finished up shortly after 2am. I opened up a blank PowerPoint document on my laptop and connected it to a projector. We were under the impression that the building was about to be torn down and that painting on the walls wouldn't be a problem (as long as no one got hurt). I had brought some colored gaffer's tape with me, five bottles of tempera paint (blue, red, yellow, black and white), several plastic cups, one box of latex gloves, and one paint brush. These items were placed on the floor near the projector stand. People were invited (and encouraged) to paint on the walls as they entered the room. They were also asked if they would like me to add anything to the evolving PowerPoint imagery. The walls became moist with condensation rather quickly and the tape stopped sticking to the walls. This was a true collaboration between many people who had never met before. We were thrilled and astonished at how smoothly everybody worked together. Many people walked in and without a word to anybody found a cup of paint somebody else was finished using and began to make their own marks on the walls. People seemed to make new friends and open up in conversation with complete strangers. In a three-hour time period with minimal preparation and no planning I experienced one of the most elating experiences of my entire life. I hope some of the feelings I lived through can be transmitted to you through this video documentation of the event. I have only rarely in my life experienced such harmony between individuals in any setting. I would like to thank Jonah Levy very much for providing me with the opportunity, and Glenn Amico for his warmth and boundless support. Glenn's remarkably positive energy was no doubt a crucial ingredient to our perceived success of this experiment. I hope you enjoy seeing the result, and I look forward to participating in countless more improvisations! Erik Sanner 8 May 2014 eriksanner.com

                On Tuesday, 27th July, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth unveiled this installation at the new London Stock Exchange, in the heart of the city of London. The Source is formed from a grid of cables arranged in a square, 162 cables in all, reaching eight stories to the glass roof. Nine spheres are mounted on each cable and are free to move independently up and down its length. In essence the spheres act like animated pixels, able to model any shape in three dimensions a fluid, dynamic, three dimensional television. Channel 4 News followed the build up to the big day.
