Parker: Axis

Axis, installation work, carbon, gold paint, acrylic, electronics, 15' x 9' x 9'h [dimensions variable], first realized 2002

This installation uses architecture and symbol as a means of inviting questions on the nature of self. A red-edged portal slowly pulses in a darkened space. A viewer sees her ghostly reflection in the frame, thrown on the golden doorway beyond and backed by the black graphite doorway behind her. She thereby apprehends her image in 4 simultaneous contexts: body, energy, gold, and carbon, together drawing an axis of separate yet linked meanings.
