"When the Barn Burns Down..."
is a two-room installation environment about earth, sea and sky designed to activate the senses and sharpen awareness.

The strong scent of raw sheep's wool is present before one enters the gallery. Once inside one hears sea sounds coming from two listening areas. Headphones offer the option of a deeper psycho-aural experience.

The moon animation cycles from rising to full every twenty minutes. Once full, it disappears for a time. The room goes dark, until the moon begins to rise again.

The smaller gallery room houses clusters of 100 drawings of the barn and moon in dialogue.

The title of this exhibition is a loose translation borrowed from 17th century Japanese poet/samurai Mizuta Masahide:

Barn’s burnt down—
Now
I can see the moon


*paper, pressed charcoal, raw wool, psycho-aural sound pieces, projected animation.
