Inspired by James Turrell and the shape of computer and smartphone icons, Katy Itter created a box displaying a pixelated sky image. The piece is the result of the artist's reflections on the shifting relationship that humans have with technology and each other. After seeing the piece I was inspired to create a space in which the viewer to be alone with Itter's digitized sky. I created a room in space where the viewer would be surrounded by multiple images, all started at different moments of the sky's video loop. This provides that sense that the viewer can see it all at once as quick as possible, a desire many of us have these days. But the images are ever changes and no matter how fast you turn the only way to see it all is to sit with each video panel for as long as it takes.
