Steve Roden, video documentation of Bowrain (2010)

Bowrain (2010) is a sculpture/sound/film installation by Steve Roden, commissioned by the Pomona College Museum of Art in Claremont California for the exhibition “Steve Roden: when words become forms” (on view Aug 31 – Dec 19, 2010). To describe the video documentation shown here, Roden writes: “The piece was inspired by a small notational drawing by Buckminster Fuller. The sculpture is made of 480 pieces of work, constructed using chance operations. The sound and hand drawn film used the same 480 elements that determined the sculpture to form their compositions.” For more info see Roden’s website:
