Davis & Davis: Induction

With the current shows winding to their close on June 2nd, I figured we could look at Davis & Davis' Induction, which is part of TAM's "Two-Headed Monster" exhibit.

Like much of their work, Induction displays the duo's unique artistry with a playful sense of humor. Between two portraits of the arts, who are facing different directions as if they were representing opposing electric polarities, a wire connects them to a plastic cocoon, in which a gentle light glows; the alternating current of creativity between the two artists brings into illumination a unique vision, which may spring forth from the wires and tape like a beautiful butterfly.

It's a very fun work that takes up half of Gallery 2. Come check it out before the show wraps up.
