Scrim is a photo booth featuring photos of people striking poses behind a lighted scrim. Look for a stage with two Doric columns. The “audience” will photograph the “actor” as they reveal themselves in shadow. There will be props behind the scrim, and the “actors” will take on unique parts in this play.
The Doric columns along with the LED lighting technology combine an old and new world. People can download these images from an Instagram account which was created for this installation to document and share these images. This is all about combining the old and the new.
Jill Torberson is an artist, licensed contractor, and a certified welder. Weld Metal Works bridges the gap between art and fabrication. These works are beautifully designed, structurally sound, and always designed with consideration to place. Sometimes the works can be seemingly fragile, though not so. Steel is the perfect material to realize this vision of lightness and strength. The idea is to design and fabricate artwork that appears to float, is light in feel, yet able to create mass and volume in space.
