The summer show at Fringe features three new
interactive projects by James Rouvelle.

Inspired by a friends’ casual comment regarding a
thimble cactus at a botanical garden, “underwater,
that plant would be a fish”, Rouvelle’s recent
writings and projects address what he experiences as a
paradox of human life on land:  like our undersea
relatives we are immersed and interconnected within a
medium, yet the comparatively thinner medium of air,
coupled with our own unique physiology, fosters the
illusion that we live in a world of discrete, randomly
intersecting particles. In his first solo show in Los
Angeles, the artist presents three new works intended
to model a thickened, collective medium. These
interactive works employ a variety of devices
including phototransistors, lasers, electromagnetic
field detectors, LED lights, Mylar and Latex inflatables,
Fishing nets, fans, and a visitor controllable time machine.
