stylus – a project by Ann Hamilton
The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts presents stylus, a project created by installation artist Ann Hamilton in response to the Pulitzer building, which was designed by architect Tadao Ando. The exhibition is on view through January 22, 2011.
As a visual artist whose contributions to contemporary art span three decades, Ann Hamilton's installations are notable in part for their capacity to weave a broad palette of media into engaging sensory environments. Conceived in response to the Pulitzer's mission to be both sanctuary and laboratory, stylus is structured around live acoustic elements. The sound design was developed in collaboration with composer and sound designer Shahrokh Yadegari.
Accompanying the project is a similarly experiential multimedia online catalogue, located at annhamilton.pulitzerarts.org. Visitors can explore Ann Hamilton's work and immerse themselves in the images, video, and audio that fill the installation.
