WINDOW INSTALLATIONS
Video: Black and Light (2007)
INV. 291 Kleinert James Art Center, Woodstock, NY
118" x 281"
For this installation and resulting video I utilized an existing window and it's surrounding architecture at the Kleinert-James Arts Center in Woodstock, NY in July, 2007. At this time of the year, the hours of daylight are near equal to those of darkness. In order to activate the large North-facing window at the end of the gallery, I masked and reconfigured it with multiple layers of translucent materials. This contrasted the fluctuations of light and received shadows from the window with the space around it (which I had painted the most recessive black I could mix). This installation successfully distilled all incoming information to light and shadow and projected to the interior, the ever changing patterns in the natural world.

HEATHER  HUTCHISON WINDOW INSTALLATIONS
Dissolution (2009) The Samuel Dorsky Museum
144" x 144" x 144" Nylon, tape, aluminum
DISSOLUTION utilizes four existing columns and a central skylight at the entryway to The Samuel Dorsky Museum, at SUNY New Paltz. Using multiple layers of translucent fabric stretched floor to ceiling around the white pilasters, a 12 ft cube was created that traps the ambient natural light and that from the skylight above. Reflective surfaces hidden inside the resultant cube amplify the sunlight and inflect the reflected light then diffused as it travels through the fabric, creating atmospheric space which modulates the natural light specific to any moment of a given day.
