'Tesseraction' is a visualization of time expressed as space. Of the four dimensions which control our existence, time is the only one which we cannot perceive with our senses. In this work HPAC has been converted into a a sequence of tesseractic translations deconstructing time and space into it's most basic forms.
'Tesseraction' is part of Drive-By, an exhibition featuring video works by MFA students at the University of Illinois Chicago's School of Art and Design. This exhibition is a collaboration between the HPAC and UIC, and is the culmination of a 2007 seminar course that explored media projection and technology, recent developments in public art, and the relationship between art and location. Led by professor and artist Daniel Sauter, the students created digital works specifically for the Art Center's Jackman Goldwasser Catwalk Gallery.
