A site-specific, multi-sensory installation at the SDSU Downtown Gallery combines photography with video and original music to explore the art of large architectural spaces and natural caves.
“Cathedrals: Jeff Ray” opens Thursday, April 7, and runs through June 12. Ray, a multi-disciplinary artist from the San Francisco Bay-area, collaborated with San Diego State University students on the installation and soundtracks.
“This is possibly my favorite way to show and create my work” said Ray, who is also a musician, curator and university lecturer. “It reminds me of when I got my MFA at San Francisco State and how collaboration, cross-disciplinary exploration, and practice was so crucial in defining my process.”
Chantel Paul, the Downtown Gallery’s program coordinator, said Ray’s “combination of visual photographs with applied notations and sound create a very layered experience.”
Ray’s art investigates the notion that nature engenders architecture, influencing our experience of the natural environment. His work has been widely exhibited.
The gallery, located at 725 West Broadway in downtown San Diego, is open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
