On View Now in Gund Gallery

Airborne Projection – Relational Architecture 20 (2013) by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer includes two floor-mounted projectors that cast current news articles onto the gallery wall. News sources vary between local and international outlets, such as AP, AlterNet, and Notimex. When viewers walk in front of the projectors, their figure is displayed on the wall. Around them, the letters in the articles begin to swirl, and shadows that look like plumes of smoke emanate from the viewer’s body. As the action of the participant determines how the work reacts, Lozano-Hemmer suggests that we shape the news every day with our individual actions.
