texting mobiles at arcades project

Local artist Werner Sun is a physics researcher at Cornell University who is perhaps best known in local art circles for his Calder-esque colorfield kinetic art mobiles. For this installment of Arcades Project, on Friday May 6th from 5 to 9 pm at 135 The Commons, Sun will create a ‘reading room’ installation that turns the traditional experience of reading a book literally upside down; a series of ‘poetry mobiles’ hang from the ceiling low enough that the viewer can read them like books, while a shower of words rains down from a cloud of text fragments.
