LEA11 Opening of "Glass Jars" Installation by Art Oluja
Glass Jars is an experimental narrative, where space contains emotions and memories in a fluid mindscape. Where fragments of nostalgia nest into vessels, drifting between glimpses of clarity and obscure dreams.
“We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images.”
― Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
Much of the inspiration for Glass Jars comes from G. Bachelard’s “The Poetics of Space,” R. Grudin’s Time and The Art of Living,” and a short animation film called “The House of Small Cubes.”
The installation incorporates some interactive elements that react as you explore and click things. Region windlight is also recommended.
Sound is an important aspect of Glass Jars, so please turn viewer “sounds” on (and up). All of the narration, soundscaping and music you hear around the region are designed from scratch, specifically for this project, and are the result of a collaborative experiment with intuitively talented Klaus Bereznyak, who uses percussion and woodwind to creatively reflect the vision and concept of Glass Jars. More details about Glass Jars, our soundscaping collaboration, and Klaus’s own perspective are in the welcome poster.
Take a deep breath, dip into the water, and open your mind…
