Matt Burnett and Scott Fuller
January 31, 2011 – February 4, 2011
**Illuminated art display on the quad after sunset**
“E-lumination” is intended as an unexpected spectacle, a provocation of reverie and environmental presence in the heart of icy winter. Using banked snow, the artists will mold multiple snow forms which will subsequently be carved into spherical, human scale forms on the quad. The snow spheres will be projected with abstract colorful imagery, evoking natural textures and elements of different seasons and ecosystems. They will be completely illuminated and the imagery will change each night.
Community members are invited to meander through “E-lumination” each night, January 31st through February 4th. The unexpected color and light in the dark of winter, combined with the encompassing scale of the project is intended to evoke a sense of community, presence and inspiration, a reflection on the contrasts of the season and the elements.
Artists Matt Burnett and Scott Fuller will be on campus for the entire week for “E-lumination,” meeting with students and faculty, and giving a public lecture.
Monday, January 31st at 7:00 p.m.
Join artists Matt Burnett and Scott Fuller as they unveil their latest environmental installation at St. Lawrence. The artists will discuss working with natural processes, the previous projects and the challenges of mixing traditional and contemporary processes.
