Inspired by ancient mythology and magic, Myers' installation series In the Planet of the Eye portrays cyclical and regenerative states. The Forms That Begin at the Outer Rim is a spare, evocative installation, in which primal forms related to the four alchemical elements are translated into a vocabulary of symbolic codes and ritual gestures. The Eye of the Beast is Red further explores mystical landscapes. An obelisk, swinging back and forth in a pendulum-like motion, is suspended above four vine-covered video monitors "planted" in the floor.
