Matthew Schreiber produces artwork in a wide variety of media, including drawing, performance, sculpture, video, and light.
Explore two floors, and three new installations, at Wood Street Galleries, incorporating all of these media intertwined with physics, technology, and the exploration of perception. Works include Double Gemini, a major new laser sculpture commissioned specially for Wood Street Galleries, along with a video installation, Summoner, and a dark space, Gift Shop.
While physically silent and static, the geometry of Double Gemini flows in and out of form, activated by the audience’s movement and point of view.
The site scaled video installation, Summoner, combines family footage shot in Zugarramurdi Cave, Spain and Juniper Springs, Florida. The manipulated video is produced with custom strobing software combined with a massive fresnel lens. The installation forces a meditative or trance state for the audience.
The final space, Gift Shop, reflects on Schreiber’s childhood experiences visiting novelty and head shops around Cleveland, Ohio. The room contains sparsely placed items that include holograms, black light drawing, and found objects.
