"The sculpture Feedback-Loop is reminiscent of Leonardo de Vinci's flying machines as a possible prediction of the future. A computer screen, stripped bare, exposes its innards: a candle and a pearl. Parchment replaces the screen. On the lambskin is an ink drawing depicting the interface of Love Letter 69/325 Pearl. The use of the journal text and the pearl represents the cyclical nature of the story, weaving together the traveler, the object, and the narrator."
About Yael Kanarek
Yael Kanarek’s multimedia works explore the relationship between language and emotion, between movement and identity. Her installations often feature words in delicate, lace-like strings of moulded rubber letters in multiple languages, including Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Kanarek is best known for her ongoing project begun in 1994, World of Awe, a virtual travelogue synthesizing photography, sculpture, and text. The fictional traveler is gender-less and nation-less, wandering in an alternate reality called Sunset/Sunrise and leaving behind love letters.
American, b. 1967, Israel, based in New York, New York
