FSU Art BFA 2013 Chase Jones will present Sunrise Cube, a collaborative light sculpture and dance performance event on this Thursday evening, July 25th at 7:30 pm. The event will be hosted by VAST @ CAB (Carhaghi Arts Building).
The Sunrise Cube is a sculpture that uses direct light to create an experiential space. With dimensions of 8 feet on each side, one wall obscures light that lands on a translucent screen to create thousands of caustics. The cube can be presented in three different ways. Up to 12 viewers may watch the sun rise inside of the cube. The cube may also be viewed from the inside, with a projector as the light source in place of sunlight. Alternatively, the screen and projector may be flipped to be used for a thirty-minute performance, for an outside audience of up to 100 members.
The sculpture incorporates dance and music as a part of the experience. Choices, adversity and love are thematic as they relate to light and darkness.
CAB is the Carhaghi Arts Building at 2214 Bellevue Way.
