David Wallace Haskins: Architecture of Light

Elmhurst Art Museum

“The Exhibition by Chicago-based multi-media artist David Wallace Haskins will premiere multiple new projects including an interactive video work and large-scale light installation within the Museum galleries. Haskins will also premiere a site-specific installation in the Museum’s McCormick House designed by Mies van der Rohe, which is the second in a series of transformative architectural interventions.

Two off-site extensions of this exhibition will presented in September: the premiere of Time Mirror II at 150 Media Stream (150 North Riverside Plaza, Chicago) in which Haskins continues his work with perception and time by transforming an immersive media wall into a 150-foot digital mirror; and Haskins’ virtual reality piece Time Spheres presented at EXPO Chicago, the international exposition of contemporary & modern art, at Navy Pier (600 E. Grand Avenue, Chicago) September 27-30, 2018.

CASE STUDY: Working with the artist, we developed a process for evolving minimalist animations that cut through a hazy particulate, evoking a volumetric presence of light carved into a void. Footage from technical tests, soundscore by DrmBt
