For their exhibition palaisdesbeauxarts.at at the Cecille R. Hunt Gallery in St. Louis, the Palais des Beaux Arts scaled their website to the limits of the gallery’s walls, treating the light from the browser as a sculptural material. Using the process of browsing as a choreographed, cinematic gesture, scrolling was suspended in space and instead thought of as frozen and contemplative.

By creating an immersive spatial experience, the reality of the past was put into contrast with an interpretation of the future, questioning how artistic intervention can apply pressure to larger technological, aesthetic, and political surfaces, if at all.

Conceived of as an automated score and room-based installation, the sculpture uses a live feed from palaisdesbeauxarts.at, highlighting selected artworks from the collection. Cycling through portions of Thomas D. Lonner’s My Blood Strangers and Sophie-Carolin Wagner’s Palais des Beaux Arts Publishing, the installation places these texts into conversation with animated sound works from Juniper Foam’s Grid for the Modern World.
