Matthew Schreiber (US)
A 75 foot site-specific laser sculpture piercing through a cloud of atmospheric haze
OPUS 2018 PROJECT
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Matthew Schreiber’s site-specific commission, Gemini, is inspired by the Cedar Point roller coaster of the same name. Gemini is a monumental, site-specific installation made of forty intersecting lasers spanning seventy-five feet that pierce the forest clearing through an atmospheric haze. As the audience moves below the cathedral-like geometry, the precise lines and angles seem to soften and evolve into curves reaching toward the sky. Schreiber is a visual artist working in the tradition of light and space. He dissects the language and history of holography to explore sacred geometry, mysticism, and spectacle. Schreiber has presented work at MONA, Day for Night, MIT Museum, and Perez Art Museum, among others.
