Painting with Two Balls refers to the 1960 Johns’ painting of the same title. A parallelogram of stretched canvas derived from the mirrored projection fields or frustums of two video projectors. The two shapes look to be pried apart by two spherical shapes. The “balls” contain micro video cameras that register the space and the viewers viewing. Two small format projectors housed in aluminum structures extend out from the sides of the structure at the division of the two canvas shapes and project across the surfaces at extreme angles producing highly distorted abstracted images.
