Carol Salmanson at Mixed Greens Gallery
at Mixed Greens Gallery, 531 West 26th Street, between 10th and 11th avenues,
lit between 8am and 10pm.
“Diaphany” uses the architecture of 531 West 26th St as the starting point for its design. The west window’s mullions, center window’s sill, and east window’s fire escape railing and ladder are all incorporated into the installation’s geometry. Placed behind diffuser material that is permanently installed in the gallery’s 108 square feet of windows, “Diaphany” includes 2,642 LEDs of six colors and two shapes, fluorescents, and more than 30 colors of gel filters at varying distances from the windows, forming hard edges and soft blends, as well as large and small forms.
This was an artcritical PIC in February 2009.
