Beyond the Sea, 2011
Fresco and egg tempura on new and old insulation foam, lapis lazuli pigment, and synthetic ultramarine pigment
Sound: whistled cover of Black Sabbath's War Pigs
90" x 80" x 26"
An continous loop of a whistled cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" from their 1970 seminal album of Paranoid is played within the Miller Gallery. When standing before Beyond the Sea, one can maneuver themself in order to find the focus point of the frescoed parabolic surface. A disorienting intensity results when standing at this focus point which is 37.1" away from the surface.
Total Duration of Song: 7 minutes 54 seconds
