Interactive installation at HB Punto Experimental, San Diego, CA
16x25-foot room, plus hallway
Summary: Dani Dodge’s work confronts emotion. It invites people to write, to burn, to tear, to throw. It requires participants to reveal. “Afterfear” is an installation created from the ghosts of her exhibitions past. Visitors are invited into a room to witness the remnants of fear, and contemplate, who are these residual ghosts? Are they us?
Within the exhibition, people had the opportunity to exorcise their own ghosts.
Materials: 13 totems made from recycled Styrofoam, a wall made from bricks with the ashes of burned fear suspended within them, walls made from the remnants of a a time-based piece that allowed people to tear the walls for the room. Also, (not shown) video and pieces created from firecrackers, paper and paint.
