DESCRIPTION

 

Tiffany Holmes creates an installation of salvaged lamps that are plugged into each of seven different electrical circuits in the gallery. Visitors are encouraged to turn the lamps on and off, and the resulting energy usage is monitored and presented as an animation on a plasma screen mounted on one gallery wall. This real-time animation reflects the shifts in the energy consumption of the lamps as they are illuminated or switched off. Through this simple means, Holmes structures a visually rich environment in which the visitor may conceptualize the often difficult-to-grasp issue of an individual’s energy use.
