Gnomonics is a multilayered installation conceived and executed by visiting artist and educator Jan Tichy. The installation’s title derives from the word “gnomon,” the part of a sundial that casts a shadow. Incorporating video projection, screen prints, gravel drawings and works from the museum’s collection, the project imagines the museum as a sundial or a time machine. The installation is realized in three distinct spaces: the sunlight-bathed Pfeiffer Wing, an outdoor gravel terrace adjacent to the gallery’s windows and the windowless second-floor gallery.
