Folly: Jonathan Mikulak & Terrance Sehr

September 3-October 5, 2018

Folly is an audiovisual installation that explores how the perceptual process influences our understanding of ourselves. An indoor space is transformed into a responsive sensory experience that bathes visitors in waves of multicolored, undulating light and abstract sound. The space aims to deconstruct the boundary between inner and outer self. The experience symbolizes the materialization of (internal) metaphysical space into (external) physical space by creating a hypnotizing environment for the subconscious mind.
