Vigil 1986, Installation in artist's studio at P.S.1,
Visitors enter room through a narrow corridor. Room is lit
by 8 black lights, 4 on floor, 4 on ceiling, creating the corner-points
of a 12 foot virtual cube. A 10 ' corrugated Lexan® tetrahedron
mounted on wall has a strobe inside that flashes once every 15
seconds. Gilt speaker in the pyramid's tip drones "waiting,
On opposing wall is a rear projected endless video loop of
artist's eye looking about the room. A ruby laser traces a slowly
oscillating infinity symbol around the eye.
This piece was later installed at the Institute of Contemporary
Art, Univ. of Pennsylvania.
