The Higher We Rise, The Further I Seem, by Matthew Gottschalk is when the sun is low. Gottschalk's playful structures are activated with projections that emphasize the ever-changing nature of our urban landscape. Then look for the surprise. In his installations, Gottschalk is known for creating hand-carved wooden marionettes as protagonists. These marionettes serve as extensions of the artist, enabling him to playfully insert himself into a variety of landscapes and environments. A single marionette is placed into this installation, representing not only the artist but also the everyman. (To see more of Matthew's work check out his solo exhibition at Alter Space.)
