Lexier Plays With Absolutes: Math-based installations dare to question quantifications

by Leah Sandals

NOW, Oct. 25 Fall, 2007, v. 27, no. 8

In the past Micah Lexier rooted his installation portraits in hard and fast measurements of time, within his interests in "quality" and "revision". For some of his works he states that every experience fit into one "box" or the other used up time or available time, life or death, black or white but not both. Logic ruled and life obeyed.

Lexier's recent experiments in the mutability of minutes are a departure and a welcome one, even for his most math-loving fans.
