BERT LEVEILLE STATEMENT — My current installation work in Woodstock’s Old Courthouse vault begins with abstraction and light with the intent to give the viewer a reflective space to walk into. The vault is approximately 9ft x 13ft — although large for a vault, a rather small space for an installation. I am striving to expand the experience beyond the confines of the concrete and steel walls by accessing reflections – referring to the subliminal and obvious, the external and internal.

I desire to give one a space for reflection and connection – a place where one can enter a stream of consciousness. The history and age of the building provides a stage and perhaps a connection to reflections of the past, present and future. My hope is that this installation is the beginning of a journey into streaming consciousness reflecting and expanding with each individual’s experience in and out of the vault.

Each installation is site specific, but this is my second creative journey in this vault. It is similar to taking a painted canvas and painting over it – starting once again with a blank canvas – the canvas/space is the same, but the painting/installation is different. As I paint and gather materials, I connect to consciousness and reflect on myself and my world as I perceive it – question and explore thought, and my connection to a greater consciousness. I see myself as a conduit as data filters through me. The happenings in the vault will stream to a tv screen outside the vault reflecting and expanding inner spaces with outer spaces; expanding the concept of streaming and reflecting.

I have included some work from my Nano Waves series which is exhibited with LED lighting. The changing colored lighting changes the visible elements and the mood of the art. By incorporating and overlapping elements from past installations, I continue a cohesive exploration into and reflective of consciousness.
