Transitions—from stillness to movement, digital to physical realms—make up a large and underappreciated part of our daily lives. Will Copps explores and expands on these moments in his new work, Liminal, utilizing audio, visual, and spatial dynamics to transform the Salve Regina Gallery into an exploration of the power and beauty of transitions and metamorphosis. Projections in Copps "pixel painting" visual style will combine with his cutting-edge spatial music techniques in the gallery, imbuing sensations of stillness and action, changing depending on the visitor's movement patterns.

In addition to the physical installation, Copps will expand the gallery beyond the traditional walls to encompass most of the Catholic University campus using a geospatial smartphone application. The app, utilizing Copps' spatial music composition techniques, will bring Liminal across the campus, transitioning the physical exhibition into the digital realm, and engaging directly with the rich historical environment of the university. Students, faculty, and visitors can download the free smartphone application and experience a gallery without walls that reframes our daily interaction with the spaces and their expression of beauty, interest, and contemplation.
