Black-Binney House // Kelly Mark: Glow House

Kelly Mark is a conceptual artist who makes use of a broad range of material and found objects to create sculptural installations, performances, video work, photographs, sound, light sculptures, art multiples, mail art, wallpaper, Letraset and tattoos.

Glow House, first created in 2000/ 2001 and has been exhibited several times including for the exhibition Here Now or Nowhere (Micah Lexier). Glow House uses  35-60 CRT television sets distributed throughout a house and all tuned to the same channel. The small flicker of light emanating from each synched TV is then turned into a ‘pulse’ of light throughout the entire house. As the scenes change, from whatever television program is airing at the moment, the house flashes and pulses as all televisions are in sync with one another. Glow House gives the eerie impression that the entire house has been gutted to create one vast illuminated space. During commercials it is as if fireworks are going off inside…
