Robert Drummond's site-specific solo exhibition presented in participation with ISEA 2012.

DISTRICT is designed to create an immersive community experience within the context of our increasingly solitary, device-focused culture. Using 3D imaging systems, DISTRICT captures the figures of gallery visitors and displays them onto large scale, state-of-the-art LED projection screens. The projected characters, or avatars, become colorful, ethereal light forms, which gallery participants can then manipulate through gesture and movement. Stored within the memory cache of DISTRICT as evolving "light-forms", each visitor becomes a part of this virtual community as it grows through the course of the exhibition and subsequent installation tour. Past forms are projected and interact with present participants, exploring the reciprocal relationship between a community and the individual.

Additional artworks by Drummond will also be on view.

A New Mexico-based video performance and installation artist, Robert Drummond integrates his work with site specific architecture, sculptural components, and interactive video. His installations have opened in London, Los Angeles, Santa Fe and national architectural venues such as the Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill designed Virginia Beach Convention Center.
