Item Details
This project was completed for the Rochester Community and Technical College in Rochester, MN and produced through the Minnesota Percent for Art in Public Places. The challenge was to produce a sculptural installation that also provided a study space for students. One of the College's main areas of study is video production, so I thought it would be interesting to create a series of scenes that mimic this type of presentation, except through physical sculptures instead of digital media.

A standing "theater" device cycles through multiples of four different sculptural scenes according to a preset computer controlled program. The scenes overlap in various layers and variable front and backlighting configurations create multiple visual effects. The scenes relate to patterns of growth in the arts and technical fields. The theater seats trigger reading lights above.

I am a visual artist, sculptor and public artist with a particular interest in kinetic sculptural devices. I've completed numerous public art commissions across the country, both as a solo artist and as a part of collaborative teams. My work ranges from temporary interactive sculptural installations to permanent sculptural object making and also includes fully architecturally integrated projects such as terrazzo and decorative stone flooring treatments. I've received grants and awards from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the McKnight, Jerome, and Knight Foundations and the National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota where, for the past twenty-five years, I've directed my own design and fabrication firm, Kaspari Design Services, Inc.
