Numbers Everywhere

Kevin Kammeraad and Friends

A 3-D, time based, mixed media sculpture. It started out with the idea of illustrating one of our songs, Numbers Everywhere. The plan was simply to have 20 things in the air, 20 on the ground, and 20 in the sea. (Can you count all 60 images?) It evolved into a much bigger collaborative project creating a three-dimensional lively environment implemented on re-purposed windows. It's packed with images for you to find and create your own stories. Since the location of the piece is in a window itself, each day the sun, clouds, window reflections, and traffic will affect what you see. Shadows will come and go. Depending on the weather and how close or far you stand, what do you notice? What catches your interest? How does the sunlight affect the image? What shadows do you see? Would it look different at another time of day? Can you tell some tales of what you see? With this sculpture and song, I want to leave you thinking not only that numbers are everywhere, but ideas are everywhere.
