This article is from 2008.
Over six pieces comprising kinetic sculpture, projections, visceral jokes, total immersion sensory works, whole room architectural installations and, with ‘Opera for a Small Room’ (pictured), an awe-inspiringly perfect sound sculpture, Cardiff and Bures Miller evoke worlds within worlds. Each separate work is capable of subsuming an open-minded viewer in its hinted-at narrative, from the simple beauty of old-book mustiness, ‘The House of Books Has No Windows’ to the self-indicting dystopian horror of ‘The Killing Machine’. Crawl in, peep, crane, marvel, and let each piece take you back to a childhood state of imaginative possibility. In terms of sensory experience, it’s this year’s Fuerzabruta. And it’s free.
