Jeff Hoefs & Peter Chester (Sound Analogous)
Jeff & Peter have constructed a sculpture that embodies a terminal which responds with sound to the movement of a person around it. With the grant, a second sculpture will be created and placed in a location remote of the first sculpture. Through the Internet, the sculptures will be linked and participants will “communicate” with one another by responding to the sounds made by one another. To learn more about Dreamspace, click here.
The Tunnel of Transformation
Michael Moss, Charlie Smith
Michael Moss is bringing Charlie Smith’s latest sculptural delight, the Tunnel of Transformation, on its maiden voyage to Burning Man. After the event, Michael & Charlie will be taking the Tunnel of Transformation to it’s next stop-over on its walk-about to different events. With the grant, Michael will be able to transport the Tunnel to its the yet-to-determined location which will likely be in the Southeast region of the United States.
