Pavilion of the Blind is a large-scale kinetic installation, featuring a colourful array of window blinds, panels and shades. The installation arranges and rearranges itself into a series of constantly changing abstract compositions. Movement is triggered by a motion detector and controlled by a microcomputer housed within the structure. The piece was shown in several galleries across Canada and the USA and continues to move to new galleries.
The work of the artists Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins is often intervention based and multidisciplinary in style. Pavilion of the Blind refers to aspects of twentieth century art while also referring to utilitarian industrial components and the reach of modern design into larger audiences. Marman and Borins present such commentary while creating an aesthetic experience: an abstract painting in motion.
