Inactive/Active: Performative Sculpture

Exhibition Dates: August 28 - September 29, 2006

Shawn Decker, Heidi Kumao, Fernando Orellana, Amy Youngs, Sabrina Raaf and Ken Rinaldo play the role of inventor/artist in presenting performance sculpture at the Glass Curtain Gallery of Columbia College Chicago.

Each work presented performs an individual function, wether it is the cycling of ferrofluids of the stirring of ping-pong balls. Some pieces call for viewer interaction while others simply want to be watched. Seemingly self-conscious, each piece expresses a message through its function, beyond what it could as a static object.
