Carousel was inspired by Robert Morris's "The Finch College Project." In his installation, a film camera was placed on a platform that rotated at one revolution per minute. One side of the room had a life-sized, black and white panorama of an audience. On the opposite side, a crew of people were constructing and deconstructing a wall of mirrored tiles. The sequence of activities in the room was recorded by the camera. The room was then emptied, leaving only dots from the mirror grid alignment. The projector (playing the footage captured by the camera) was placed on a platform rotating at the same rate as the original film camera. The images of the audience appeared and disappeared as the mirror wall was built and unbuilt, projected onto the walls of the same room. Carousel uses this same visual technique to create a communication link between two public spaces. The center of each room will have a rotating podium. A camera, microphone, speakers, and a projector sit on each podium. The podiums rotate slowly at the same rate. As they rotate, the images captured as the camera rotates in one room are projected around the space in the other room and vice versa. The result is a moving snapshot-in-time along the periphery of the room as people, both physically present and projected, are moving about the space.
