“In the hands
of these little-known
artists, patches of wasteland became transcendent kingdoms; empty lots
sheds were gateways to healing and the heavens; and homes and yards
simultaneously became museum and masterpiece,” said Arts Center
DeYoung Kohler. “Visitors will enjoy mysterious machines, concrete
thrones of bone and towers of steel, and two complete installations,
exactly as the artists, or ‘environment builders’ as they are sometimes

Interested in the relationship between vision and psychology, Carlos Ferguson creates interactive dioramas and viewing apparatuses that use photography and digital technology to suggest other realities or ways of seeing. Little World, for example, allows a viewer to guide a small remote control car/camera through a constructed space of disparate environments (suburbs, city streets, an empty beach), allowing for a slow journey that is a "mars-rover-strange way of seeing."

Valerie Hegarty creates installations of foamcore, paper, paint, glue, and gel medium that challenge notions of time and space and play with perception and reality. Overseas (Fireplace with Harpoons) is simultaneously the construction of a domestic space with a painting and fireplace and a “re-imagining of the sea as a transformative force that is unleashed.” With a seascape as its central focus, this installation combines elements of history, anthropology, and fantasy into a dramatic metaphor for turbulence and change.
Overseas (Fireplace with Harpoons) by Valerie Hegarty (Foamcore, paper, paint, glue, gel medium; approx. 10' x 8' x 8').
