'Camereye Voyageur' features large photographic screens, two 'Camereye' nine foot high puppets that are manipulated by remote strings and five tripod 'peep' camera viewing boxes. Each of the cameras feature a tableau made three dimensional through layering of transparent photo images within the bellows of the light collecting cameras. The puppets are camera headed stick figures with moving arms and legs with lights in the lens and heads that give them a glow at night.
This is the third window installation we've done in the Blink Gallery window. The gallery is sadly closing because of changes in the economy but will continue in it's corporate and private art consultation business in the upstairs offices. The logo of Blink Gallery is two wide open eyes. We thought these puppets would be a perfect match for the last harrah show.
The images of distant worlds show us they obey the laws of light and dark with images of rocks and ice, dust and gas. Our remote vision through the lens of space telescopes shows us how incredible this space over our heads really is.
“Who would believe that so small a space could contain an image of the entire universe?”
