Windows : A four-part project over the course of
a year an undetermined amount of time two years
February 2, 2019-
February 2, 2020 TBD February 2, 2021
Four interventions at four different times
of year— starting at the front of the house and working around clockwise -- will frame various moments in time. Each installment will be loosely associated with the cardinal directions, as well as seasonal changes as predicated on light conditions. The work engages the built environment using the given architecture as a starting point to call attention to materiality, both past and present, as well as time itself.
Tuesday, June 16, 2020, Virtual Viewing from 8:00 am - 2:00 am via Twitch TV
This third iteration of Lowman’s Windows takes as its subject, the south-facing picture window; it loosely adopts the day and time-frame from James Joyce’s novel, Ulysses, first published in 1922 (just twelve short years after The Homer Project house itself was built). Between the approximate hours of 8 am on June 16th and 2 am the next day, a live-stream will capture internal and external meandering light and sound, invoking Joyce’s stream of consciousness writing style, one that complicates internal thoughts with external events. Phase Three, Part Two takes as its mode a more abstract condition, fleeting sights and sounds between site and artistic interventions, frameworks that correspond with the site itself. It is as much a reflection on revelations of discursive thinking and being, as it is a meditation on current times, the passage of time, real time now.
In addition to the virtual viewing, on June 16th the artist will be on-site between 7:30 pm-8:30 pm to view the exterior portion of the exhibition with any guests who would like to join. Unfortunately, the interior portion of the work will not be accessible. We are observing strict social distancing practices. Please remember to wear face masks and keep an appropriate physical distance from other guests. We thank you for your cooperation. Street parking is available, as well as the parking lot at the Montecito Heights Rec Center three houses down. Please do not block the driveway.

Justin Lowman is an artist, arts educator, and founder of Parthenia Projects based in Northridge, CA, a Los Angeles suburb. He creates site-specific work bridging art and architecture in order to engage with perceptions of time, space, and the interaction of form as it pertains to multiplicity and relevant inter-dimensional objects. His work has been exhibited at Agency Contemporary in Los Angeles; the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA; High Desert Test Sites in Wonder Valley, CA and Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, CA, among various other venues. He received his MFA from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.
