Ultimate Mobile Art Gallery

In the ultimate mobile art gallery in person, some items are attached to the wall for maximum visual impact all at once. Some items are affixed to the floor, unmovable, in the place where they would usually be used. Some items are loosely placed on stands, tables, or the floor to encourage hands-on tactile interaction with the viewer. Words on stickers are a major component of Lyrical Mezzanine to represent/model the adhesive nature of words, concepts, or principles in our lives that stick around in our minds and memories, whether we want them to or not. One section of the work is based on a piece of prose that is expanded into a myriad of physical elements/features that compose an interactive garden.

As viewers physically venture through the exhibit, you will see, read, feel, and touch fragments, features, and portions reminiscent of your own individual world that create conversation pieces for considering how various details in your lives and the lives of others matter. Lyrical Mezzanine invites each patron to accumulate a unique experience by viewing oneself directly or someone one has known personally, met, or heard of in each piece, thereby experiencing the piece inevitably somewhat differently from previous viewers. Instead of telling viewers how to feel, the poems are written and the items are selected to evoke corresponding feelings and emotions.

This work juxtaposes written poetry with physical objects with which patrons can deeply relate. As the viewer might expect, the words of the poetry describe or provide a context in which one could or should view or interpret the physical objects. Simultaneously, the viewer also is offered the opportunity to view or interpret the words of each poem or prose in the context of the emotions, thoughts, or memories evoked by the physical objects. Lyrical Mezzanine takes the words off the pages and helps you come alive three-dimensionally also as physical objects, and brings viewers into the poems literally as the exhibit surrounds you. The exhibit therefore culminates in a multidimensional, multifactorial, and multisensory encounter.
