Mike Beradino Crystal Palace

March 15, 2013 – April 20, 2013 John M. O'Quinn Gallery

Crystal Palace is an installation consisting of dimly lit screens painted with photo luminescent-pigment.  A custom-built green channel laser “projector” will then project graphical interpretations of the space onto the photoluminescent screens for a few minutes. The projector then turns itself off, leaving an embedded image on the wall that slowly fades away.  The projections will continue to cycle until the sensor array connected to a hovering robot begins to compile a new data set. The subject matter of the projections are graphical interpretations of the space and are sent directly from the hovering robot to the “projector.” These interpretations will change depending on a number of site-specific variables.
