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.
