The solo show by installation and video artist Elaine Buckholtz, Light Making Motion: Works on Paper and in Light, will be taking over the entire Electric Works Gallery on July 8th, 2011, for an exhibition featuring video, light-based work and works on paper, which will employ video projection, channeled light plates, a trove of optical devices in vitrines and vibrant prints on the wall.
The projections and light-bending apparatus charge the exhibition space with an otherworldly glow that alters the viewers’ perceptions. Buckholtz’ presentations of transformed objects and lenses into visual apparatus feel like a peek behind the curtain in the Wizard’s laboratory: using the various optical devices around the gallery, viewers will have the chance to interact with the exhibition.
The show runs through August 20, 2011.
