is the wall mounting:</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in"> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in"><strong>description:</strong> a small, visitor controllable time machine. pigmented (white gouache) drops of water are illuminated by a variable, user controllable strobe. by adjusting the speed of the strobe the drops appear to be frozen in time, moving forward, or moving backward. stick a finger in the drops and adjust the dial next to the basin to enhance the effect. nothing fancy, really, but i liked the way this piece worked with the other elements of the show. i particularly liked the backwards effect when placing a finger in the droplets of water. the sound was nice, too – and added a disorienting element as you could hear what was ‘really’ going on while your eyes were telling a different story.</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in"> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">i traveled with this circuitry in my carry-on and couldn’t install the piece until an hour before the show due to a series of other things to take care of pertaining to the rest of the show. at 5pm i quickly set it up and, with fingers crossed, turned it on. with minimal tweaking it worked. my friend sam was generous enough to do a huge amount of circuit building/fabricating, and helped me trouble-shoot the waterworks as well. thanks sam.</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in"> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">the strobe was giving us headaches while working in cramped rooms in baltimore. the room where the piece sits in LA was accidentally built twice as big as designed, but the larger space mitigated the intensity of the strobe and i found myself, and other visitors, spending lots of time with this work.</p> </div><!-- .entry-content --> <footer class="entry-footer default-max-width"> <div class="posted-by"><span
