Kelly Ogilvie’s Well Red installation came down today.
She removed it from the gallery and quite generously put part of it up in the studio.
“Jedi” Dan Johnson (Our only hope) of Bridgewire was the only man in the known universe who could stand on that ladder and staple that ceiling. Hat’s off to that computer genius, electrical expert, kind tall person that he is.
Kelly has 7 new opportunities to install her work as a result of her Well Red installation. I’m not going to list them all, you will see what happens.
These magical, wave like beauties will now grace us with their presence on a semi-permanent basis.
Like the eye of a hurricane, many forces coalesced in Kelly Ogilvie’s universe to make this install and event happen. She had arduino controlled Morse code, Hieroglyphs, scents, binary, DNA, coded sheet music, invisible ink, red wavelengths, yarn and some other fabrics, combined with a visual representation of a coded story (that you could just read if you couldn’t decipher part of a genome), AND performances by The Deadly Gallows and the ever talented Xtevion. What a fantastic event!

She got them to actually read, from a book.
The smells are part of a code, a cipher if you will.
A picture can do this no justice.
I believe this is where she dies.
It is a trail of some sort.
Oh yes, we share art of many forms. Music for example. The Deadly Gallows perform.
Yes I made a video. These pictures were taken on Kelly Ogilvie’s camera, this one was taken by Eric Santti, I imagine all of them were.
