Artwork displayed in Dayton

Wendy Weiss, professor of textiles, clothing and design, and her spouse, Jay Kreimer, are showing their newest art installation, “Traveler’s Field: An Animated Textile and Sound Environment,” March 30 through April 23 at the Triangle Gallery of Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio.

The work uses sheets of textiles, projected film images and movement-triggered sounds to evoke the sensations of Midwestern landscape. It consists of three strips of fabric 10 feet long and 2 feet wide undulating above the floor. Nearby is a tree, another handwoven creation, and an image projected on a cloth panel. Viewers trigger sounds of animals in grass, vehicles on a creaky bridge and other noises.

The artists have exhibited their work in Vancouver, British Columbia; Nebraska and South Dakota. “Traveler’s Field” was first installed in 2003 at the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney.
