A Theorem: Remembered is a sculptural, site-specific string and light installation. Colorful string is fastened to a 3D metal pyramid structure, which resembles a coniferous tree. The installation incorporates over 50,000 feet of paracord tied horizontally and vertically to the 35-foot tall by 20-foot wide metal tree. Interlacing patterns on the surface of the structure create the illusion of depth. Highlighting that sense of depth, are multi-colored geometric projections, mapped onto the artwork. The dynamic projections contrast and accentuate the structural shapes, colors, and patterns, making the piece different from moment to moment. Fisher juxtaposes the fluid nature of the pliable paracord and moving video projections against the rigid, geometric backdrop of the metal pyramid. The result is a monumental structure with an airy feel.
