Kaleidoscope is an immersive sound and video sculpture installation. Shown at Strathmore mansion May 2019 and earlier at Artomatic in 2017
In a darkened room the visitor is immersed in a tranquil environment of colors, lights, and sounds.
The focal point of the room is a rotating screen about 45” in diameter on the floor in the center of the room. A video of constantly changing patterns is projected onto this screen. This video is made up of 99 screenshots of changing kaleidoscopes created from time-lapse photographs of cherry blossoms, from buds to fallen petals photographed over a three-year period.
Fixed around the circumference of the screen are 36 unique and different 12-inch-long "mirror" arms. Each arm is different and made up of a mix of little mini glass mirrors. Their colors change as they rotate with the patterns of the kaleidoscope and light bouncing off the mirrors is reflected around the room.
