Presented by- and at the Institute of American Indian Arts Digital Dome (Santa Fe)
Cree Métis artist Jason Baerg utilizes significant symbolic indigenous numeric values to inform narrative, color and repetition. The piece There Was No End is a unique interactive work that investigates global social metaphors with interest to activate collective observation and response. The 360o spherical display of abstracted symbols of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth appear in sequences of 13 to reference many indigenous communities’ 13-moon calendar. There Was No End utilizes groundbreaking researcn and development on the integration sensors and interactivity in the world’s first fully articulated digital dome.
