Cloud of Whiteness

Interactive Installation & Performance Score

As a microcosm of our current and trans-historical political climate, this immersive and malleable large-scale sculpture offers the illusions of choice. Construction materials – brick, canvas, rope, and repurposed motor – are layered against the seemingly invisible technologies of digital surveillance. Viewers and performers construct and reform structures of protection or achievement within a hostile environment, while custom software and physical computing privilege perceived whiteness. Whiteness presents itself here in painted bricks, theatrical snow, and the light-skinned bodies able to move about the space unimpeded.
