Installation Mock-ups

Three paintings, two video screens, two View-Masters, 1 audio.

The Cascade – Moments in the Televisual Desert is really designed to adapt to just about any kind of space.

As a solo exhibition, all of the paintings would be included, plus one television screen (with audio) for each of the unique videos and one View-Master unit for each reel, on separate pedestals. As this is a group exhibition and our smaller space in Cambridge requires more creative arrangements, I am adapting the project to work in a contained manner. This requires a lot of planning and mock-ups that must be ready to adapt again once I’m there.

There are several possible configurations that I will discuss with Oliver in the next week. These progress largest footprint to smallest:

Three and Two

Three of the paintings, two video screens / televisions (one with audio), two pedestals with View-Masters and audience-interchangeable reels.

Note: the third painting (on the right) is only a placeholder to show totality. The third piece is not complete as of this posting.

Two and One

This is my preferred arrangement for Cambridge, as I suspect we will have more space than previous graduating classes, but not enough to do the Three and Two.

One and One

The most compact of the options, based on earlier arrangements I’ve seen at LUCAD’s smaller gallery spaces. I suspect we’ll have more room to do something like the Twos, but I’ve included this just to visualize it.

    Nice arrangements. I like the flexibility. I also suspect we’ll have more room, like the two and one arrangement. Are you using a specific program to generate these?

    Thanks! I think the two and one will be fine, but it’s interesting to play with different options vs. the bigger spread of a solo show.

    I am just using Photoshop to build them, combining drawn and photographic elements.
