"Wiggins has divided her space into three parts. In the center is a video projection of people on the gallery's side wall; they are either alone or in groups, reciting prayers for others. Wiggins used word of mouth in her home town of Boulder to gather volunteers to be recorded praying for this project. On either end of the space, like bookends for the projection, are two 'prayer rooms' that are visually enclosed with fabric panels and made into two ten-foot cubes."
Below is a sampling of Wiggins work, provided by the artist. Her show (and Benson's) run through October 8.
