Interactive Art Installation





TITLE: “Eyeing the Cosmos While Astride the Abyss” WHAT: An interactive Art Installation HISTORY: This installation is in response to my diagnosis in 2010 of Stage 4 breast cancer that had spread to my lungs, liver, bones and spine. I was told there was no cure, but that the cancer could be “managed” with a mastectomy, removal of lymph nodes, taking a daily chemo pill and a monthly IV drip. On that day, the patterns of the floor tile in my doctor’s office were forever etched into my mind. There it was, the lifting of a proverbial veil. The night after my diagnosis, at 3:00 a.m., I woke up afraid. Afraid of everything unknown to me which suddenly seemed like absolutely Everything. I went outside to a sky full of stars and looking upward, drifted into deep infinite space. When I went back into the house I was shocked that 2 hours had passed. I had no more fear, just peace. This is my gesture to that moment. That realized moment between fear/peace, life/death, finite/infinite. The public is invited to experience my attempt at manifesting this profound transformative state into an installation. All that is required of the participant is to wear comfortable clothing and to bring an object, no larger than a quarter that can be exchanged on the “Table of Tokens” that is waiting at the center of the journey.
