KLOMPEN (DETAIL)

Trimpin

1987, wood, metal, electronics

One of the highlights of the permanent collection is the installation Klompen, by the Seattle-based artist Trimpin. Klompen is a sound sculpture that includes 96 Dutch wooden clogs that connect to a computer by wires suspended from the ceiling. Placing a quarter in the token box electronically triggers mallets in the toes of the shoes. Trimpin is a contemporary artist who uses sound as a medium for sculpture and works between the genres of art, music and science. His influences include German cuckoo clocks, early electronic media and experimental composers. Bring plenty of quarters; Klompen plays 24 different compositions!

PASSACAGLIA (DETAIL)

Ann Preston

2007, mixed media; steel, plaster, and acrylic paint

Passacaglia was completed by the L.A. artist Ann Preston in 2007. The sculpture's name derives from a musical form related to dance. Like its name, the sculpture is composed of geometric forms- a dance of triangles that combine to become diamonds, transforming yet again into larger geometric units which expand into a counter rythm of contoured panels.
