> DESCRIPTION

This new installation by acclaimed San Francisco-based artist Jim Campbell explodes the moving image into three dimensions, illuminating the Haas Atrium with a flickering grid of light that is part sculpture, part cinematic screen. Thousands of computer-controlled LED spheres create the illusion of fleeting shadowlike figures that dissolve and resolve as one moves around and beneath the suspended, chandelierlike matrix. Exploded Viewsinvestigates the nuances of perception through a series of four different films, changing every two months, the first of which is a collaboration with Alonzo King's LINES Ballet.
