THE FINGERTIP IS AN IMAGE-FORMING ORGAN OF SIGHT: Kylie Lockwood
February 3-24, 2018
Opening Reception, February 3rd, 6-9pm
Coop presents sculptures by Kylie Lockwood, made in collaboration with Daryn R. Blanc-Goldhammer, at the University of Oregon’s Department of Cognitive Neuroscience. Focusing on investigations in human perception, this work consists of multiple sculptures made in response to the experiences and conversations Lockwood engaged in while artist-in-residence at the University of Oregon’s Lewis Integrative Science Building. The primary component of the work is a binaural audio recorder cast from the artist’s head. This device creates a binaural soundscape, exploring the space between a first-hand experience of place and the mediation of that experience through a surrogate self.
