Spring Table is a communal audiovisual environment. The tabletop serves as projection surface, and visitors seated around it activate different sound and video elements that combine dynamically to create an always unique combination of elements. Based on the idea of database cinema, in which a narrative unfolds by selecting scenes from a collection rather than presenting them in a fixed linear structure, the mediascape presents images and sounds related to food and dining, production and consumption, with an emphasis on our relationship to the natural environment and the combinations that result from exploration and trade.

 

Caitlin Pickall is a multimedia installation artist. She combines audiovisual and constructed elements with sensors and custom software to create reactive objects and environments that address material culture, social rituals and processes of meaning-creation. Her work explores the mental concepts used to define self and experience and the relationships between these constructs, physical objects and environment/space.

Born in the United States, she has lived and worked in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin. She holds an M.F.A. in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Chicago.
