transcendence: object, culture and technology
work by Ashley Pigford and Jason Ferguson
The show opens at 619 N Market St, Wilmington, DE 19801, Friday, November 7 from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. Interactive performance by Ashley Pigford begins at 5:30pm.
Ashley Pigford works with language and everday objects. "Knock Knock" is an intereactive doorbell that converts "Knock, knock. Who's There?" into a rhythm. His, "28,770 Megabyte" kinetic piece constists of 15 reclaimed hard drives that seem to dance about like small DJ turntables, creating subtle rhythms.
Jason Ferguson applies scientific practices such as taxidermy and autopsy to inanimate objects from our everyday lives. Ferguson's "Inanimate Dissection" is a piece where he dissects a shoe, creating a beautiful yet disturbing video of the process, and an odd artifact like sculpture. "Visible Object" is another object and video created by slowly cutting away at a lamp similar to the Visible Human Project.
