Drive-by / walk-by interactive artwork

This work is best viewed at night or dusk and is activated by the passer-by through the use of a flashlight or flash photography

Always will be on view until social distancing ends.

This work is a reproduction of textile fabric designed in 1920 — the year the Spanish Flu ended –by the artist Raoul Dufy. This artwork is an installation set in the windows of a residential house in Victorian Village. By re-visioning Raoul Dufy’s fabric pattern, Melissa Vogley Woods helps remind us to imagine that this, too, shall pass. Patterns can be comforting and intimate as well as emblems of human memories. The design created by Dufy reminds us of a moment of relief and renaissance that is striking, beautiful and joyous. The work is in essence, a reflection of light. The light is a phantasmagoric presence only seen when activated by light shined on the surface. The viewers’ actions of taking a flash photograph or holding up a flashlight are needed to make the work complete.

Always, we will go through these moments

Always, we will find ways to continue…
