Erica Bailey explores perceptions of time and space through installations that combine dioramas and video. She frequently turns to vernacular architecture for subject matter, seeing it as a primary means by which we delimit space and order our understanding of it. Her work exhibits a fascination with spatial binaries such as inside/ outside, close/remote, and often references events that unfold over unfathomable expanses of time and distance or realities beyond our natural means of perception. Her new installation for RMAC will include four dioramas set in the prehistoric past, the recent past, the present, and the distant future, affording a quasi time travel and expressing a longing to understand the significance of individual experience within the scale of humankind and beyond.
