Diller + Scofidio

The Desiring Eye: Reviewing the Slow House

'92 May 20-Jun.17

These two highly innovative artists use a combination of installation and performance art to present their own personal statements. In this exhibition, several realities of their own design, using mental images in order to reconstruct an image of the whole. In the interior of the gallery, twenty-four glass liquid crystal screens have been arranged. Each device has been designed to become transparent when electric current is sent through it, and then turn milky white when switched off. Peering into each of these objects can either reveal a story, or just the models on the other side of the glass. This type of performance art is remarkable for its power to evoke new visions of the future.
