Gallery PINK will open a new exhibit titled “Event Horizon” on Monday, Feb. 16 and stay open until its final showing on Sunday, March 15, according to a press release from Laurel Wolff.
The exhibit is a multi-sensory experience for both the viewer and the Illuminated Sound Refractors by artist-in-residence Jenn Cooper. The art will be on display in multiple stages throughout the duration of the exhibit: production, installation, reception, and de-installation.
“Presence and activity change the resulting frequencies emitted by the modules,” according to the press release. “While the gallery is open, the artist will be present facilitating conversation between the experience and its participants. During closed hours, the Illuminated Sound Refractors will still be actively engaging in a dialogue, heard softly through the gallery windows.”
“Event Horizon” is responsive to environmental fluctuations, creating a changing viewer experience. Within the exhibit, sensors are aimed at changes in light levels and movement within the gallery space. “Based on the time of day, the weather, and the amount of physical viewers present, the installation will be a dynamically changing experience, no two encounters the same,” according to the press release.
Gallery PINK is located at 149 Harrison St. in the Oak Park Arts District. The gallery is open on weekends from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the third Friday of each month. For more information, visit http://www.gallerypink-elkinsstudio.com/gallerypink-elkinsstudio.com/Home.html.
