Carole Feuerman's current work incorporates digital interactive moving heat sensitive media and sound with her painted resin swimmers. This has taken her art to an entirely different level. By projecting video and combining multi media, Carole has managed to turn what would normally be a mere viewing of the piece into a wholly immersive and interactive experience.
The projection not only alters the look of the sculpture, but actually swallows it whole to make it part of the video. Inseparable, the sculpture and video unite on a plane just between their respective medium categories.
This hybrid breed of artwork also serves to convert the exhibition space. What would normally be regarded as 'the room in which the sculpture resides' is now an environment which takes you to a new dimension. The surrounding darkness disallows the viewer's effort to locate themselves in the space; the artwork as your focal point becomes the only locus available for spatial relation.
