Opening Reception 4 November 1999 8pm

Back Gallery: Provisions The sound loop – a repetitive machine noise – sets the scene immediately: industrial-age workshop or micro-factory. Those familiar with Kathryn Walter’s work will recall she has made various projects on development sites that are also sites of demolition.

Rocco Turino

18 February 1999 - 27 March 1999
Opening Reception 18 February 1999 12am

Window: 360 Miles Apart If mom was a doctor serves as a basis for 360 Miles Apart. The work derives from repeated periods of convalescence in between doses of media.

Opening Reception 8 January 1999 8pm

Project Room: Interface I am interested in the place where people or objects meet and in their potential to communicate and be altered through their interactions. Two elements compose this work.
