The debut of a brand new rolling public art installation by Durham artist Heather Gordon (http://heathergordon.transition-project.com/) will be revealed on Friday April 15th at the Duke Tech Expo hosted by the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club. Durham based audio/video systems integrator KONTEK Systems has commissioned the work as the inauguration of a series of pieces to be exhibited on the company vehicles. 

Gordon’s work is drawn from her interest in forms of communication - in particular the method that information is recorded and transmitted, stored and shared, interpreted, encoded, and mapped. 

This new work is an interpretation of the KONTEK slogan “Nur tote Fische schwimmen mit dem Strom (only dead fish swim with the stream)” realized as an origami folding pattern. Detailed information and more photographs are available on Kontek's website.

The installation will be making its debut in the parking lot of the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club on Friday April 15th from 8am through 5pm and by appointment after that date by contacting info@kontek.com.

Heather is also featured in this month’s issue of Our State magazine as an innovative and prolific artist currently working in Durham’s Golden Belt. See the article at https://www.ourstate.com/studio-tour-with-heather-gordon/
