Sedimenting (+Orifice), 2011. Variable Dimensions
HD Video Projection, LCD Monitor with HD Video and Stereo Sound, Telescope, Sculpey, Dirt, Assorted Organic Material,
Olfactory Component (Hunter’s Cover Scent - “Earth”)
This is documentation of an installation at the Sullivan Galleries in Chicago, Illinois. The work consists of an organic, sculptural
orifice on the wall of the gallery. Inside the aperture is a tiny video depicting tall grass fluttering in the wind. Beyond the orifice,
is a small room. The viewer enters the room to a large-scale HD video projection featuring extreme macro images of organic material.
The smell of dirt permeates the space in an attempt to dislocate the viewer.
"Crewe’s installations explore an otherworldly outdoors. In the video installation ‘Sedimenting’, dirt-caked hands claw at
stitched-together citrus rinds." - Laura Pearson, Time Out Chicago
