Hamilton Building - Level 2 — Included in general admission.

Charles Sandison’s video installation Chamber uses computer-generated projections of light in dazzling fashion. In an otherwise dark room, multi-colored projections form words and symbols as abstract imagery dance across the raw surfaces of the walls. The Scottish artist’s paradoxical work employs 21st-century technology to evoke primal feelings of wonder and awe.

Chamber originally was on view in 2009 and 2010 in the exhibition Embrace!
