Looking Glass Gallery presents Void
Void, a collaborative installation by David Gordon with music by Austin
Fowler, will be on view Aug. 23-Sept. 14 in Plemmons Student Union's
Looking Glass Gallery at Appalachian State University.
A closing reception will be held Tuesday, Sept. 14, from 7-8 p.m. in the gallery. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibition is curated by Dianna Loughlin, curator for the Looking Glass Gallery.
Gordan and Fowler have turned the gallery into an environment in which light and sound combine to create a sensory experience for the viewer that challenges them to question their existence in relation to reality.
Gordon's artistic interests are inspired by his desire to understand mental and physical place. This practice allows him to enhance simplistic visuals and sounds to create new visuals and concepts within the mind of the viewer. The visuals gain meaning through the correlation of the viewers' body placement and the physical environment surrounding them.
Gordon's investigation into this particular installation began with drawings and paintings, along with hours of deep and personal inward thought. The collaboration with Fowler resulted in the use of sound speakers in the piece. The result is a work of art in which Gordon and Fowler have manipulated the effects of light and music to create a new awareness of reality, unreality and of the infinite and the void.
