The Flattening and Opening of Space


and Walking/Listening/Recording

Carrie Bodle will be presenting her work at two openings in the Pacific Northwest in the upcoming weeks. Her collaboration with Margie Livingston in the New Works Laboratory 2006, jointly sponsored by 911 Media Arts Center and the Henry Art Gallery, The Flattening and Opening of Space, explores artworks at the intersections of painting and installation art to investigate the boundaries between 2-dimensionality and 3-dimensionality. Their project incorporates drawing, sound, and projected imagery to create the experience of being inside a perspective drawing. By opening what is usually flat, and flattening what is usually spatial, Bodle and Livingston challenge the viewer's preconceptions of space.

Walking/Listening/Recording: Tryon Creek (2006) is a 10-channel sound installation set along the Trillium Trail in Tryon Creek State Park, Portland, Oregon. Along the initial 250ft passage of the Trillium Trail, speakers from hidden locations cast layers of found sounds interwoven with poetic murmurs and field recordings from around the Red Fox Bridge area in the park. William Stafford's poem "Walking with Your Eyes Shut" inspired the use of poetry in the piece - to form a dialogue between the visual and audible experience. These layers of sound are intended to engage visitors in a sonic narrative along the trail.
