<em>Ghost Pearls </em>is an architectural sculpture that explores spaces of connection and mediation. The work is based on research into local and historical forms of lace-making, early digital art, and contemporary virtual space. The sculpture is made from hundreds of pieces of rigid, individually cut mirror that are woven into an open, lace-like form, and suspended from the central beam of the gallery. As mirror, the work reflects both the viewer and surrounding architecture in an experiential play that raises questions of mediation and virtuality. <em>Ghost Pearls</em> references lace in the collection of the Fairview Museum; conversations with local and regional lace-makers; historical links between lace, value, and time; the 1964 digital artwork “Ninety Parallel Sinusoids with Linearly Increasing Period” by A. Michael Noll; and works of the Light and Space movement. ABOUT THE ARTIST Kristin Posehn is a Los Angeles-based artist working between conceptual sculpture, architecture, and painting.
