The LAB 2.2: Ingrid Mary Percy ATOMIKA: snowflakes / laceflowersMay 31, 2002 - May 31, 2002
Victoria artist Ingrid Mary Percy creates a digital video installation which reconstructs the patterns of molecules and evokes other structures in nature; snowflakes and laceflowers are also the scientific terms used to describe types of molecules with hexagonal symmetry. However, her materials — electronic music, Lite Brite and digital prints — are drawn from contemporary sources.
Says Percy, “These complex and fundamental systems (molecules) that are the basis for all matter in the universe, the stuff that everything is made of, can be explained or imaged using a very simple toy that anyone growing up in North America in the late 20th century is intimately familiar with.” Percy’s sensorial project morphs and fuses these images.
A limited edition CD will also accompany the exhibition.
