k staelin: affinities

Affinities, 2010-now
Flash program
1024 x 768 px

Affinities addresses the question of romantic triangles and how one figures out the "best outcome." Moments of directed thought and lapses of daydreaming are woven into productive, everyday activity. Elements of the “work a day” world compete with the animated flowers and people. Playing with choice, the flowers are programmed to thrive according to whose views and desires are currently favored.

Vision Dev Dev, 2011
Mixed media on paper
25 x 39 x 5 in.

Regarding work, how should we determine long-term priorities and figure out which immediate projects we should focus on? Who should be involved?

K Staelin
Patter/ns, 2010
Dynamic digital projection, mirrors, patterned rug
112 x 108 x 180 in.

This work is inspired by the distillations and associations made within conversation. Two small mirrors reflect the projected dynamic drawing downwards onto the rug while a third mirror bounces it to a large mirror that in turn bounces it onto the rug. The larger reflection created by the double bounce extends the dynamic, highlighted rug patterns yet further, paralleling how conversation extends beyond the participants.

Cars | Cone, 2009
Paint, gel, tape, mirror, with projected dynamic image
Dimensions variable

This work physically articulates how specific our visual focus is - focusing on two things simultaneoulsy is very difficult. The moving cars and pedestrians are one one wall and via mirror, the cone appears on the opposing wall.

Stranding Memory, 2009
Plastic, wire, dry ice, water, projected images and video
14 ft. high

A meditation on our experience of time, Stranding Memory is composed of projected videos of people that travel along a helix and projected images of events that form another helix. Fog from dry ice further enhances the dynamism of the piece as well as the sense of dissolution of memory over time.

Graphite, paint, gel, plastic, mylar, with projected dynamic image
Drawing: 78 1/4 x 74 in., overlayed projection: 74 x 74 in.

Playing with symmetry, expectation and projection, digital versions of the shapes that compose the woman and man in the physical drawing are dynamically projected onto drawing.

60 x 17 x 17 in.

Despite having growth patterns the vines, nourished by TV
signals, grow continuously without ever repeating themselves.
This clip is silent though the piece uses tv signals.
