Some of my Trees of Life Sculpture and Multimedia Installation on Governor's Island...artworks from years past with Figment in preparation for 2014...
This being my 6th curated year on Governor's Island I plan to devote the next series of blog exploring the facets of this fascinating interactive series and to study its impact and evolution(s) over these years here and abroad on nature, the arts and the many thousands of people who have been part of the Installation.

|The Lovers circa 2000 - Oil on canvas 14" x 24" - Peter G Pereira|
...and the inclusion of a front page Article on my very early performance and multimedia shows with wrap sculptures called the Peter's Paradox Box in the Montreal Gazette from the early 90's.
The Artist Studio for painting and sculpture and music and his muses brought out onto Paradox Box Stages.
The canvas taken off it stretchers and become painting in the round surface.
One can discern my Dancers/Sculptures as translations of 2-dimensional surfaces (my Collapsed-Volume Skins) into 3-dimensional or vice-versa...my Collapsed-Volume Skins reconstituted into stretched Surfaces, and with the tip of my brush the point of origin at Infinity where the flow imagination and reality meet and part as the ebb and flow of Waves.

Also the invitation of Evolution F, the off-Broadway multimedia Surreal Opera and Spectacle which I co-wrote with the magnificent Laurie Fierstein, as Multimedia and Artistic Director (including animation film) and Musical Composer (Paradox Box the Music).
The Peter G Pereira Trees of Life Series derived from these many earlier and contemporary works with Nature as palette with repertoire of light and shadow, grass, buildings, perspective and sky, Trees as 3-dimensional support for canvas and sculpture at once and Acreage for Installation, while People no longer as audience and observers but as participants and interactive elements of the vivid and original whole and fluid composition's whole.

This Year on Governor's Island I will be wrapping the largest selection of trees and the greatest variety of interactive sculpture elements on two sites of Governor's Island with the fabulous Figments Arts Festival and the creative teams of artist which will contribute their works to the overall Magic and Mayhem of this great Event in June.
I will over the next few weeks go into various aspects and insights of the Installation process for the Trees of Life.
