ArtSpace & Mass Development present:
“Web Portal” is a live site-specific multi-channel video projection installation by NYC artist Stephanie Beattie.
“Web Portal” visualizes the shape of communication on a doorway formed by the projection screens wrapped around a seven-foot Cube*. Patterns emanating from the natural and built environments are navigated by a crawling spider and the shadows of the participants who explore the threshold.
Some imagery provided by Maynard’s Historical Society depicts Digital Equipment Corporations’ early circuitry. A reference to place and an echo of the technological past.
*The Cube; this installation was made possible by a placemaking grant from Mass Development to ArtSpace. Design and construction of The Cube by InSitu Architects, public art management by Zannah Noe. Also, thanks go to the many volunteers from Maynards Historical Society, Maynard’s Cultural Council, and Maynard’s Brat Pack, who know who they are…
