KINESTHESIA (2), is an art installation that surrounds the viewer with moving light and color projected on the walls of the darkened gallery. It consists of a sculpture made of 56 highly polished pieces of steel hung on cords from the gallery ceiling that reflect video feed from projectors. When viewers enter the gallery the steel pieces move and twist on their cords, causing the patterns of light projected onto the walls to change.

"My work primarily examines the physical disengagement with presence, common to mediated experiences in photography as well as film and video. I draw a viewer’s awareness to their physical and temporal presence by creating perceptual interactions with recorded light phenomenon that is mediated through optical devices, which elicit a range of emotions." - Ryann Cooley
