Description:  To and Fro is projected on two sides of a panel built inside a passageway. The image anticipates the flow of viewers through the gallery. As one passes through the doorway, the image sinks in, on the other side; the image pushes out, implying the wrong direction. The image, a layered grid of spheres creates a moiré pattern as is moves in and out.
Part of the Collection: San Jose Museum of Art.
