Henry Biber Waking Monolith
Statement by Henry Biber: The video installation of Waking Monolith is mimetic of a motif which we all may experience repeatedly, regardless of age, experience or acuity. We find ourselves in situations which make no sense–which may appear as utterly chaotic which eventually come to full clarity. Such seeming dimness in the observer is not a comment of that individual but is the manner in which we grasp the external world. The evolution of Waking Monolith into its final form exemplifies this movement of obscurely sensing—to seeing situations in a way that resonates. The theme has primal quality and we’re susceptible to its playing out whenever we open our eyes again.
