On November 10, Open Space presents For Everyone A Fountain, a new work by Victoria-based artist Robert Youds. Architectural in its initial demeanor, Youds’ latest work offers an experiential, immersive adventure at the intersection of painting, sculpture, light, sound, time, and algorithm.
For Everyone A Fountain is created out of industrial material and standardized office equipment— honey-comb aluminum, boxes, lamps, galvanized steel sawhorses, electrical cords, and power bars. Bright colours are strewn throughout the installation, lit by mesmerizing and ever-changing coloured light from forty ordinary desk lamps. The light patterns correspond to a computer’s attempt at reading and deciphering landscape photography. With this exhibition, Youds creates a metaphorical room where inanimate objects reinterpret stored images as if through their own terms.
