Kristin Lucas: Sick Waves, 2015


Greater Flamingo, Marching

Moving Image Installations 

Kristin Lucas presented two moving image installations—silent meditations on the impacts of human activity and climate change—designed to interact with the body. Sick Waves (2015), projected onto the Kay Bailey Convention Center Dallas, is a mesmerizing whorl of waves projected onto architecture. “Sick” is a surfer term used to describe the awe of a surging wave, simultaneously impressive and disquieting. Greater Flamingo, Marching (2017), installed at Pioneer Plaza, is an abstract motion study of flamingo legs, multiplied across LED matrix screens and positioned along a walking path. This piece is from a series of works that focuses on the flamingo courtship march and responds to the impacts of habitat disturbance as well as the decline in habitat quality on flamingo breeding.
