"Mark Porter: Interactive Sculptures, Lithographs and Drawings"
2004-06-25 until 0000-00-00
Ann Arbor Art Center
Ann Arbor, MI, USA United States of America

The Mark Porter exhibition at the Ann Arbor Art Center will open June 25 and run through July 25, 2004. The exhibition will feature kinetic, viewer interactive sculptures as well as related lithographs and drawings. The exhibition will be designed so that as the viewer moves through the exhibition space, movement will trip a motion sensor that activates each work of art. The sculptures will perform a function that mimics a unique type of human and/or animal behavior.

"Each piece is designed to approach the viewer with themes of human consciousness, human fragility, human sexuality and the desire to create and customize one's surroundings," Porter says. The lithographs and drawings will illustrate the idea and development of each piece.

Mark Porter received his MFA from the University of Michigan School of Art and Design with an emphasis on sculpture in 2002. He has won numerous grants and awards, and his work was added to the permanent collection of "Art and Technology" in 2001. Porter has participated in many group and solo shows. "They become aged, more worn as I and the viewers use them, building up a sense of history, just as any individual would," says Porter of his work.
