Kristin Lucas, Magic Eyes Cream Headache Sandwich, 2005, three channel video installation, running time 4 minutes, edition of 3 + AP.
Kristin Lucas multimedia works continue to address the complexity of our relationship with rapidly spreading technology and and the
psychological effects it generates. She exposes the sense of isolation from the computer/electronic media substituting for personal
contact. Tribute is Kristin Lucas' first solo show in New York since 2001. The exhibition consist of two projects:
Lower East Side Bike Drum Roll (2004-2005) is a video performance tribute to the residents on the Lower East Side, a historically
influential community of activists, artists, musicians, performers, and writers. Lucas attached a snare drum and cymbal to the handlebar of
her bicycle and rode through the neighborhoods of the Lower East Side, performing at intersections: a drum roll for the duration of each
red light followed by a cymbal crash on green.
Magic Eyes Cream Headache Sandwich (2005) is an anniversary event staged by Lucas for her arms. In this experimental set-piece,
presented as a three channel video installation, Lucas dramatizes the internal conflicts associated with haptic-enhanced communication.
