“Crazyology” is an upcoming exhibition by artist David Normal in the Atrium Ballroom at 1000 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, California. The exhibit opens January 19 and runs through February 15, 2013. There will be a closing reception on February 8, 2013 that will feature, art, performances, “tales of the paranormal, experimental music, raffle prizes and much more.”
The central aspect of the show will be Normal’s “Illuminations” installation, which are large glowing art works suspended 10 feet in the air, rotating freely in space and creating a mobile of disembodied images floating in the darkness of the cathedral-like Victorian atrium.
The show will be a multi-sensory experience featuring an interactive sound-sculpture, the “Auraloscope” that is the creation of electronic instrument inventor Theremin Barney. The Auraloscope uses motion detectors to trigger samples that are cycled through delays to create sustained feedback loops that comprise an ever varying soundtrack to Normal’s images.
