Art in General is pleased to present Christopher Duffy’s New Commission\ , I Think I Want My Energy in All Colors\, a series of new glass s culptures presented together as a dynamic installation.

\n

Suspended from t he ceiling of the storefront Project Space\, a mechanized series of glass v essels turn on an axis\, shimmering and reflecting against the windows. A c ollection of tubes\, acting as a sculptural circulatory system\, pass air t hrough glass vessels encased in brightly colored balloons. Expanding and co ntracting\, these inorganic organisms breathe\, giving the installation its own heartbeat and pulse. In another corner of the space\, a glass rainbow explodes from the base of a bronze tree trunk\, reaching for the sun. A fai nt soundtrack penetrates the space\, a constant loop that mirrors the kinet ic movement of the installation.

\n

Sublime\, wondrous and playful\, I Think I Want My Energy in All Colors links internal and external syste ms of connectivity. The work’s confounding transparency\, highlighted by Du ffy’s use of craft\, abstraction\, and everyday materials\, plays with the concept that looking and being looked at are vital forms of interaction.
