fermata..., 2006
In a dark room repeating tripartite bells knell. Images begin to appear out of a cast and sculpted piece of acrylic that serves as the screen. Origamic flowers slowly appear and open, then close and slowly fade. Two whispering voices emerge – one plaintive, urging the other not to leave, the other, resistant, stalling with concision.

fermata… interrogates the space between digital content and physical object – pitting the illusory against the tangible, the temporal against the eternal. A ‘fermata’ is an element of musical notation indicating that the note should be sustained for longer than its note value would indicate. Exactly how much longer it is held is up to the discretion of the performer.

“Specific materials and forms respond to and alter the projected image. The projection cleaved with physical surface can suggest a tactility and intimacy of materials at the intersection of sensation, perception, and touch. I look for gestures that provoke visceral responses; lingering, pausing, disappearing and reappearing, these motions become metaphorical touchstones. To capture absence is to sense the perceptual shifts that occur from experience to memory…but the images, too, fade away, suspended between object and illusion. A little more than a dream, yet, a little less than reality, is the space of memory.” – Susie J. Lee
