TIVON RICE at Lawrimore Project

17 Feb

TIVON RICE • A MACROCOSMIC ZERO

For his second solo exhibition at Lawrimore Project, the video and installation work of Tivon Rice in A MACROCOSMIC ZERO is its own creation and its own cancellation. It is at once: the thing itself, the thing assaulting and transforming itself, and the thing finally destroying itself. It is a system operating as its own logic for being—a logic concerned with the self-referential, the tele-visual and entropy. Working with a combination of live video capture, a motion actuated camera, light elements, architecture, video monitors, projection, and real-time computer processing of video and audio feedback, this is Rice’s most ambitious installation to date. Like a new-media-Minimalist, Rice explores the transformation of televised information to pure form, light and experience. In his environments, the viewer’s consciousness of a physical experience confronts the normally passive function of watching video works. Engaging spectator’s awareness of, and proximity to, color, time and space, Rice creates opportunities for active viewing. Complimenting this major installation, we are also pleased to be debuting a suite of video ‘portrait studies’ using similar feedback strategies and loosely based on the paintings of Francis Bacon.
