Recently I wrote about the re-opening of Dynafleur, a significant work of art by Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield that has just been re-installed at LEA11. And this weekend—Saturday, June 15 from 12 pm to 2 pm slt—another Story/Enfield work that has been missing from the grid, Ripple: a meditation on waves, will re-open in Avalon Town thanks to the assistance of Tricia Aferdita. In this work the creative duo add the collaboration of composer March MacBain (Emily Wilkins in real life).
Ripple is a highly interactive installation that allows the viewer to change textures and experience a changing audio landscape by moving about, and it's really impossible to capture it with still photos. These three images were taken inside the main large space to give a sense of the changes that can occur, but the exterior and other areas are striking as well. Here, I've created simple tiled textures, but you can go pretty crazy by clicking many of the individual tiles in quick sequence, too, to create a collage. And—be sure to read the notecard to discover a little hidden feature that lets you float through the space!
