ARTE: Sean Shim-Boyle

Love this site specific installation by LA based artist Sean Shim-Boyle..if in town its a must see!

From the press release:

"Installing 100 beams to the existing architecture alludes, in part, to the forests of his childhood home in British Columbia. By lowering the existing rafters, this transformation compresses the space. The intervention alters the sensory relationship the viewer may have to the building. Towards the rear of the space is a set of automatic sliding glass doors, a variety commonly used in commercial premises. Placed in too-close proximity to one another, the sensors designed to open and close the doors are compromised, leaving the doors locked in endless standoff. The arrested movement of the doors creates an apparent passageway that is neither accessible nor secure."
