For those of you (and you are NOT alone) who not exactly sure what installation art is, wikipedia describes it this way:
Installation art is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces, whereas exterior interventions are often called public art, land art or intervention art; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap.
Most of our installations have been indoors. And while it is by no means unique, our tendency to include original musical compositions as part of the installations, is a distinctive, as is Christa’s repeated use of origami and painting. We usually start with a theme or overarching concept that we research and develop visually, musically and conceptually. Almost always we hit a spot in the artistic progress where something unexpected must happen for it to really work — an exhilarating, dangerous phase that teaches humility and patience and adds an urgency to the process that is both beautiful and exhausting!
