Biyuu II: Daily Interactive Performances
October 08, 2012 - 2:30pm
Events begins on September 21 and goes until November 1. In her site-specific installation, Biyuu II, sound and video artist Liz Phillips collaborates with butoh dancer Mariko Endo Reynolds to create an interactive visual soundscape that responds to and transforms the natural actions of wind and water. Sensors trace the air currents outside the gallery and movement inside as people pass through the space, activating sounds and luminous imagery. The title, Biyuu, is a Japanese onomatopoetic word describing the sound of wind through bamboo. Viewers are also invited to perform/interact during all gallery hours. This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the David Bermant Foundation. Gallery hours are Tuesdays - Sundays 12-4 pm and by appointment. UMF Art Gallery, 246 Main St. Farmington. FREE. Open to the public. Sponsored by University Forum.
