Bardo I: Como Arae, an installation at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, employs “a dense mix of light, paint, and sound, immersing the viewer in an undulating, living, breathing painting,” according to artist Corvas Brinkerhoff. “Objects in the room will create shadows, which will composite into a light and shadow underpainting, which I will interpret with actual paint.” Visitors can sit or lie on benches equipped with embedded subwoofers. There they will be “bathed in colored light while gently resonating to low-frequency vibrations, inspired by the depths and hollows of transcendental, liminal states of consciousness.”

Brinkerhoff said the artwork is not interactive in a technological sense, because it does not include sensors that could be triggered by viewers to activate devices. “However, the imagery of the piece is a lot about light and shadow, and your shadow becomes part of the imagery. I’m interested in creating work that connects with the viewer in a way that is deep and unusual. It’s a way to take a break from the chatter and the madness of trying to, you know, make a living.”
