About Vacuum Space
In Vacuum Space, a video sculpture, Samuel Adam Swope plays on the parallel existence of a thing. Tangible, familiar objects chosen from home are vacuumed into a digital place, and become doubled. They are then optically given volume within imagined, virtual, parallel narratives.
