Description:

"Request for Change" was an installation piece utilizing multiple-screens, four-projectors, soundtrack and 5,000 sq.ft. of broken glass. It featured interactive, cross-projection time lapsed computer-run dissolve sequences. The piece dealt with issues of mental health, specifically aspects of schizophrenia in our culture. Two different images faded from one to the other, in full scale, as they were re-projected into the original corner of the image's architecture. Images were comprised of a sanitarium's publicity beauty shot and later documentation of the same sanitarium’s closing and final destruction by fire. Viewer could stand inside of the projection and experience the slow change from one image to the other. Soundtrack illustrated simultaneous and schizophrenic awarenesses of hospital and frantic emergency care environments.
