Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art, Portland, OR - Lewis & Clark College, Sep 10-Dec 10

by Allyn Cantor

This site-specific installation by Portland artist Bill Will transforms the Hoffman Gallery into an interactive art environment in which the visitor activates the art. Fun House requires participants to follow a circuitous marked course where mechanical devices start and stop, objects become illuminated then fade. The dramatic effect of sculptural contraptions, both static and kinetic, is enhanced by sound recordings, theatrical lighting and ambient breezes, creating a multisensory experience that crosses the boundary into theater as viewers become part of the live art piece.
