Medi(t)ation is a multi-layered, interactive, new media installation. Viewers' movements are integrated into imagery projected outside and throughout the space, creating overlapping, fading silhouettes and color fields. Drawing upon stained glass, sacred geometry, mandalas, and other meditative traditions, Valosin's installation offers viewers a new, hyper-mediated space for contemplative experience and fosters renewed awareness of self and site.


About the Artist
Eric Valosin is a New Jersey based artist and seeker of the techno-sublime. 
Straddling the realms of traditional mysticism and postmodern phenomenology, Valosin aims to challenge perceptual expectations and open new territories for contemporary mystical experience. In a world whose space is more often cyber than sacred, whose world-views have begun to transcend conventional transcendence, Valosin uses light and projection with drawing, painting, and interactive new media to explore the potential of mystical experience since postmodernism.

Valosin holds an M.F.A. from Montclair State University and a B.A. in Studio Art from Drew University. He is an adjunct professor in both the art and communications departments at The College of Saint Elizabeth (NJ), and a contributing editor for the art blog NotWhatItIs.com. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the greater New York area and internationally, including exhibitions at Magnan Metz Gallery (NYC), The Attleboro Arts Museum (MA), Gallery Aferro (NJ), Howard Gardens Gallery (Wales, UK), Seton Hall University’s Walsh Gallery (NJ), FUSE Art Infrastructures (PA), Aljira Center for Contemporary Art (NJ), and The Visual Art Center of New Jersey (NJ).

Concurrent with Medi(t)ation, you can also see Valosin's work in a collaborative 3-person exhibition entitled Sanctiloquence at City Without Walls Gallery (Newark, NJ) on view through March 18th, and Building Books at the College of Saint Elizabeth's Maloney Gallery (Morristown, NJ) on view through April 23rd
