Ascension Installation by Mutsu Crispin

view additional image 1
Conjures a pixellated reality reminiscent of 8-bit computer graphics from the 80’s, particularly early video games like Asteroids, Space Invaders, Super Mario, etc which I was deeply immersed in as a child. This playful vocabulary is used to depict a process of transformation, evolution or ascension of some aspect of a person’s inner capacity or spirituality, aided by a number of small pixellated 'helpers' who tend to the process or provide structure and parameters.

Edition of 10

2200 bouncy balls (or 'super balls') arranged in a perfect grid, squeezed between two sheets of plexiglass with stainless steel hardware and rigging.

Mutsu Crispin is the art alias of John DiGeorge, who spent his childhood outside of Atlanta playing in streams, collecting Legos, watching cartoons, drawing monsters and triumphing at video games. He studied visual art and filmmaking at Harvard, and was an assistant instructor for classes in oneiric cinema (films dealing with dreams and other altered states of consciousness). After working on a variety of film and art-related projects in Boston and NYC, he moved to southern Vermont and began producing his first independent feature film, Redbelly, now in the last stages of postproduction. He has exhibited paintings and sculpture, created art installations, worked as a welder, performed as a dancer and clown, and run a small design company.
