"Terminus" (2014) visualized Atlanta’s transportation past, present and future and New York City subway tunnels. It was a multi-media installation created from light, ribbon, string and video. Projection created by Pablo Gnecco, sound design by Adam Babar, armature construction by ExhibitCraft and photography by Steve Moraco. The audience was able to enter “Terminus” and traverse the artwork as if walking through a subway tunnel. This project considers what the city of Atlanta could become if their transportation issues were resolved. The piece was installed in Atlanta, Georgia at the Goat Farm Arts Center for the Hambidge Center of Creative Arts and Sciences Art Auction.

Bruce Nauman Bouncing Two Balls Between the Floor and Ceiling with Changing Rhythms, 1967-68 10 min b&w, sound, 16 mm film on video
In his ten-minute conceptual film, Nauman attempts to keep two bouncing balls within a taped-off square.

The video would inspire a new work by Francesco Vezzoli titled The Return of Bruce Nauman’s Bouncing Balls(2006), in which porn star Brad Rock theatrically sways, in the nude, for the camera.
