Light pulsing in rhythmic patterns will surround visitors of “Continua in Light,” a video installation by Bay Area artists Cheryl Calleri and Thekla Hammond coming to the California State University, Dominguez Hills University Art Gallery September 17 through October 10.

“Continua in Light,” which had its first showing in January at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art in Santa Barbara, includes two projections and nine translucent suspended scrims hung in two triangular formations in front of a 10×28-foot screen on which their video is projected. The effect envelops the visitors in an immersive experience. The artists have also created still images from the video that will be exhibited. This is the second video installation done jointly by Calleri and Hammond, who have a history of collaboration.

An opening reception will take place on Sept. 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will feature a dance performance choreographed specifically for the exhibit by Doris Ressl, coordinator of the university’s dance program and assistant professor of dance in the Theatre Arts and Dance Department. Two performances will be presented, one at 6 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m.

Open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the University Art Gallery is in room A-107 on the first floor of LaCorte Hall on the CSUDH campus, which is located at 1000 E. Victoria St, in Carson. Admission to all gallery events is free.

Parking in campus lots is $4, with passes available for purchase at kiosks located in each lot.
