HOVVER is a collaboration between Brooklyn-based artists Katherine Brice and Chris Lunney. Chris has a Bachelor in Design and Technology from Parsons, and Katherine has a Masters of Architecture from RMIT University. Through their individual and shared experiences, the two create work which investigates our physical perception in relation to our understanding of reality.
The two work through the process of play and experimentation to investigate the perception of light, sound and space. These experiments are then developed through the principles of design and iteration to present works that focus on the viewer’s experience. Their work leads the viewer to become a participant, which aim to manifest visceral, ethereal, and introspective moments within mind and body.
Liminal Scope I & New Works
An Immersive Light and Sound Installation
On View: October 4th - November 8th, 2018
Tues, Weds, Fri, Sat - 12pm to 7pm
Thurs - 12pm to 9pm
Wallplay presents "Liminal Scope I & New Works" from Brooklyn-based artist collaborative Hovver, as part of programming for ON CANAL. Liminal Scope I is an immersive light and sound installation, in which three rings frame the transit of light through space. The audio-visual score enmeshes harmonic frequencies, rhythmic motion, and gradients of color, orchestrating a narrative which navigates tension and release. Reality is mutually constructed by human perception along with human limitation. The installation’s rings form an aperture that focuses and reveals a spatial quality of light, a quality which usually remains unseen. Liminal Scope I is a meditation on these perceptual limitations as they relate to shared and individual perspectives on reality.
In addition to Liminal Scope I, the artists will also present a series of studies examining qualities of light and its properties. A tryptic of photographs will also be on display, capturing the visual phenomena of Liminal Scope I. The installation will be on view to the public from October 4th until November 1st, 2018 at 323 Canal Street, in conjunction with ON CANAL’S October programming at large.
