Finnbogi Pétursson / Infra-Supra
Infra-Supra in Western Gallery is Finnbogi Pétursson’s first exhibition in the northwest United States.
January 16 – March 16
Finnbogi Pétursson uses sound waves to create patterns of intersecting ripples on the surface of a large pool of water. With the aid of strategically placed lighting, the pulsing wave patterns are projected onto a wall in the form of animated dance of shadows. Pétursson refers to his poetic visualizations of sound as “drawings,” emphasizing the otherwise undetectable patterns of lines that his installations render observable.
