Inside Breathing Lights

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Join us for a behind the scenes look at one of the region’s most ambitious public art projects ever, Breathing Lights, which will illuminate hundreds of vacant homes in Albany, Schenectady and Troy in fall 2016. Learn about the technology and concepts behind the lighting effect, how the project was sited and documented, and how it connects with neighborhoods across the region.

This October and November, Breathing Lights will illuminate the windows of hundreds of vacant buildings in Albany, Schenectady and Troy. Warm light will fill each window with a diffuse glow that mimics the gentle rhythm of human breathing. Concentrated in neighborhoods with high levels of vacancy, Breathing Lights will transform abandoned structures from pockets of shadows into places of warmth. The Arts Center’s vacant upper floor windows will also be illuminated as part of the project.

Interiors Recalled | Madison LaVallee

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Interiors Recalled is a new project based on Capital District residents’ memories of domestic spaces they no longer inhabit. Through interviews, participants described the material and objects that existed in the space. Questions such as “what material were the walls?” were asked, and if the reply was “wallpaper”, follow-up questions invited them to describe the specific imagery, patterning, and/or texture of the paper.

Upon completion of the interviews, participants’ memories of objects, textures, and imagery from the space are translated into sculptures and installations in the form of “material composites”. Each piece is titled after the year the spatial memory was from and the location, such as, Bellevue, Schenectady 1974, keeping the participants name, gender, age, etc. anonymous. This project focuses on domestic architecture, materiality, the memory of a lived space, and the translation from a verbal description to sculpture/installation.

Heavenly Body | Andrea Hersh

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

During her residency at the Arts Center, Andrea Hersh continued to make her protagonists part human, part vegetable, using monochromatic tones that imbue the work with a sense of despair. Hersh has created worlds overrun by these creatures, representing the utopia that could have been our planet. By insinuating these fanciful hybrids into precarious and toxic situations, she explores themes of vulnerability, desire, greed, and industry gone awry.
