For the second “Night Forms” season, Grounds for Sculpture has partnered with Klip Collective to present a reimagined after-hours, multi-sensory light and sound experience designed to engage with the GFS art and horticulture collection.
“Night Forms: Infinite Wave” creates an evening landscape of creative exploration through lighting, sound, and video projection mapping, a process Klip Collective pioneered. Designed to provide a dialog with specific sculptures in the collection, such as Carlos Dorrien’s “The Nine Muses” and Bruce Beasley’s “Dorion,” the audio and visual exhibition offers new perspectives on these works and multi-dimensional space.
Building on the success of last year’s exhibition, the new season, beginning Nov. 25, will be unique, sustaining popular works, such as “Frog Head Rainbow” featuring artist Michelle Post’s sculpture, “The Oligarchs.”
The Main Loop path wormholes through the grounds as more than a dozen installations punctuate the dark. Observers become performers through a series of interactive moments, their actions causing a ripple effect that echoes across the work and then disappears. Patterns of light are syncopated to original soundtracks while glitches appear, reminding visitors that behind the dreamlike visual scenes is an invisible array of computer code.
Klip’s founder and creative director, Ricardo Rivera, is a self-taught, site-specific media artist and pioneer of video projection mapping, having earned multiple United States patents for his technological breakthroughs in the medium.
Exhibition hours are sunset to 11 p.m. Thursday to Sunday (last ticket available at 9:30 p.m.) Nov. 25 to April 2.
Grounds For Sculpture is located at 80 Sculptors Way, Hamilton, N.J. Visit groundsforsculpture.org for tickets and information.
