Further Along the Path

"Further Along the Path" is a sequel of sorts to Bryn Oh's collaborative exhibit "The Path" of the previous year. As with the earlier work, eight artists collaborated on a single project, each building on the work of the previous artist, with the order chosen at random.

The narrative structure of this exhibit is less clear (to me, at least) than in the previous one, but certain threads run through each build. The rotary telephone connects one build to the next (but be sure to pick up the notecard with all the TP points in case you have trouble finding the telephone).

The telephone gives a warning: two of the staircases lead to death…only one leads onward. Choose carefully.

In every dream there is an awakening…here is the struggle to awaken

Bryn Oh uses some clever scripting in the final tableau (not pictured) - reminiscent of the scripting used in the stairs in the Avatar Games.

Another entertaining and thought-provoking exhibit. Well worth the time to explore.
