Synthetic Horizon

Scott Carter's avatar Scott Carter

The installation will consist of a re-creation of a horizon line using wheat grass, fluorescent light and the construction of a false wall that will span the length and height of the ramp space at the UICA. A break in the false wall will expose a living landscape that will be back-lit by fluorescent bulbs. As viewers enter the ramp space they will feel as though they are walking along a hillside as the sun breaks the horizon. As an artist I am interested in the existing potential of Architecture and Design and my ability to alter them, forcing subtle shifts in context and function.
