Useless Things & Other Stuff

Sandra Halpin’s immersive video sculpture installation, Useless Things & Other Stuff, opened to a lively crowd at the Fine Arts Gallery of the Santa Fe University of Art & Design. Four video installations and other sculptural works filled the entire gallery, including two anterooms and a sidebar area. The gallery, which has been used mostly for more traditional art exhibits, was not set up for video. But this did not stop Halpin from creating an event that blended the sounds of the raucous attending crowd with loud carnival music, video voice-overs and other miscellaneous sounds like squawking ravens and crashing metal, with colorful, multi-visual looping videos. Working Artist Working
