Walking Through Walls Spacex Gallery, Exeter 9.1.93 - 6.2.93
"Presuming it can go through the arches and windows, a viewer's glance finds itself going through only to be bounced back off the walls, creating a gentle disturbance of the air. This is relayed, it seems, by the arches communicating between the rooms and on the walls. It is a relay which does not end, for the rhythm of the forms is just that little too irregular for the eye to settle down: it is as if there is some limit to the visible that cannot be seen but can be felt, like the warmth of a radiator. What limit? That the eye is blind to its ability to penetrate matter is one of it's defining features: seeing involves not seeing the air between eye and object or the wave lengths involved. Walking Through Walls - both installation and words - seem to capture the visual ability to pass through space or matter, making them transparent, but this cannot be captured visually, for a blindness to this ability in part defines seeing."
