Transcending the limitations of the photographic medium, John Singletary creates multi-disciplinary installation experiences. Photographs are animated through synchronized state-of-theart organic LED panels, which serve as large format electronic canvases. Included in the exhibition is Anahata, an immersive experience that explores human relationships and their connection to the divine. Using an open-spectrum camera in a purpose-built, UV light studio, choreographed movements by dancers were captured to produce dream-like images steeped in archetypal symbolism, mythology and mysticism. A new, ongoing multimedia installation, Traces, is also on view. This series depicts the extraordinary light and darkness in the human condition through video, audio, digital and stop-motion animation, and historical footage.
