Spirit features a selection of Judy Stone's newest works. Interested in contemporary issues of ritual, iconic power and violence, Stone's recent work integrates aspects of East and West culture. In Praxis (for Kali) - a video installation - Stone combines the practice of meditation with discharging firearms, creating an integrated space between East and West. In another piece, her use of surveillance cameras connected to numerous televisions juxtaposed with meditation pillows invites the viewer to experience transforming fields of awareness and focus into sites of paranoia. Stone's installations re-contextualize East and West identities and thoughts by merging them, thus creating an atmosphere in which one must re-consider their essence.
