[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Bruce Evans – Flora Floor

Artist Statement

From a distance, Flora Floor looks only like a dark, glassy surface. But those who accept the invitation to “please walk on the glass” will feel as though they’ve entered a lush world. Holograms depicting a variety of botanical imagery project up from the glass surface, creating the unique sensation of walking on and through the flora and rocks. Simultaneously, a motion detector cues a recording of wild sounds, completing the sensual transformation from hushed gallery to botanical oasis.
