911 Media Arts Gallery presents the exhibition Light_Paper_Sound.  This exhibition is an installation using randomly selected video projected on three dimensional paper surfaces synced with audio tracks played on speakers hidden in the sculptures.  The overall effect creates a unique environment of dynamic color and sound. The works collaborators are artists Joseph Gray (sculpture/video) and Gabriel Herbertson (audio) with original music by Beth Fleenor (clarinet) and Paris Hurley (violin). 

Light_Paper_Sound is constructed of paper cut-outs folded and curved into three dimensional forms and suspended in the gallery space.  The paper is used as a sculptural “canvas” for the projected light from LCD video projectors being fed imagery generated by computers running an original software application, called aXiMaL, written in Flash Actionscript by artist Joseph Gray.  Small speakers are hidden in the sculptures and play audio recordings also selected and modified by the software to accompany the visuals.

911 Media Arts Center was incorporated in 1984 and is considered Washington State’s premier Media Arts Center. Their mission is to support the expressive use of innovative media tools by providing the access, training and environment needed to create/exhibit works of enduring merit and artistic excellence. They believe everyone can and should have access to the tools of communication.  911 Media Arts Gallery is a exhibition space for the experimental use of audio and video as an artistic new form.
