The Santa Rosa Storm and Cities in Dialogue Exhibition Launch

This installation by artist Brian Mackern from Uruguay features a ‘Fluxus’ box that contains a religious image of Saint Rosa and a installable kit that reacts to the presence of the audience and the movement of a candle flame. The reactions then affect the sound and visual interferences of the projection of the meteorological maps.
