Elaine Buckholtz: Freely Falling Objects

Presented By

Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture

Through May 25th

Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) proudly presents Elaine BuckholtzFreely Falling Objects. This video, sound, and light installation is an FMCAC commission by nationally recognized visual artist Buckholtz — a visceral exploration of architecture and space, with the windows of Gallery 308 serving as a portal or lens to project both on and through.

Freely Falling Objects comes from systematic experiments carried out by Galileo Galilei (1564-1642). Objects in this state are not supported by anything, and not acted on by any forces except the gravitational force. Objects achieve “free fall” at a very specific moment in the acceleration of their descents. Buckholtz’s work examines this specific moment and transition of form, and this changing relationship of movement within space.

The accompanying text is taken from Czech-born philosopher, writer, and journalist Vilem Flusser (1920-1991). His critical work focused on cultural experience and interaction in the post-technological era. Flusser’s breakdown of influences reveals how we perceive and comprehend ourselves as we move rapidly through contemporary nonlinear spatial experiences.

Freely Falling Objects is activated periodically throughout the year at sundown. Check the calendar at right for the next scheduled presentation. (Please Note: Activations / illuminations originally scheduled for November 19, 2018 through November 29, 2018 have been cancelled.)
