Robert Whitman, a pioneer of multimedia installation and performances, has a long history of collaborating with engineers and scientists, using technology to create images that incorporate live action, specially built props, sound, video, and other visual media. Whitman’s interest in making the unfamiliar familiar informs his entire oeuvre, from the 1970 installation Children and Communications (1970), which enabled kids to connect with kids in other neighborhoods via phone and fax, to SUN (2007), a projection of actual satellite imagery of the sun onto an expanse of fabric positioned on a rooftop in New York. Celestial bodies appear frequently in Whitman’s work, altered in size and appearance.
