“I am interested in how viewers respond to familiar elements in unfamiliar forms, situations, and interventions” — Ryan W. Turley
Ryan Turley’s White Noise transforms an industrial shipping container into a giant multiscreened light box. It consists of eight stationary, abstract compositions that are backlit by fluorescent light. The images recall the snowy fields that were found on television screens after a network lost its transmission signal. This effect was an everyday occurrence during the analog TV era. Both abstract and representational, physical and image-based, White Noise will illuminate and activate the grounds of Hamilton Square.
