This is the website for David Fyans / Erstlaub - artist, soundmonger, maker of images, video and stills, presser of buttons and rotator of knobs, art director for broken20, Insurance Underwriter for the National Tropospherics Commission, occasional writer of things and assorted other charges levelled at me which may or may not be accurate. It is in a perpetual state of deconstruction, one day it will get sorted out properly, that day is not today. In the mean time, please feel free to have a look at the following links.

INSIDE STONE
MASTER'S DEGREE SHOW
ROOM 239 (textiles corridor)
DJCAD, DUNDEE
16th - 29th August 2013


An exploration and excavation of the spaces between; between the physical and the ephemeral, of time now, past and yet to come and real and imagined landscapes, between symbol and meaning.

The installation as a spell, built as ritual practice, combining occult geometry, numerology, focussed will and the realisation and rationalisation of shamanic vision - obscurely seen in the half light between wakefulness and dreaming, psychic fugues, secrets of the universe, whispered softly in the darkness untangling.

The magickal construct invokes and insinuates imagined space in which considerations of cosmic scale, the aeon's breath and geological time may be observed and explored - explosions happening in slow motion over millennia, the sound of glaciers singing and time's subtle hand on landscape.

 

You can view some images of the piece here and read a .pdf of supporting material here (4.3mb opens in new window).
