Meridith Pingree, Magic Curtain (2011), at Freight + Volume 7/2011
I'm making a short list of 2011 favorites and top of the list is Meridith's Magic Curtain, but I saw it the day before I went to Istanbul and never posted it, so... HERE IT IS!!
strings of sparkly beads... insanely labor-intensive... together the strings creating a pattern - but a shifting pattern - as the individual 'wipers' slowly rotate, lifting/dropping sections of bike chain, which lift and lower the strings of beads... slo-mo curtain raise and drop, like an ocean swell.
... as seen on James Kalm!
