Back to Black
This installation was put on display at a defunct movie pavilion in a space now being used for cultural events. The artist used the pavilion’s tall, paneled windows as a canvas for a massive projection, featuring an animation of great scope that is visible from inside the pavilion as well as from the street outside. The graphical universe of Russian constructivism comes alive in the animation with the added feature of motion through time and space. Geometric forms drift across the grid of windowpanes: wanderers tracing their celestial paths. Each form leaves a random imprint of itself as it passes, and piece by piece larger structures emerge, rising against the lambent backdrop. Finally, one last shape is put in place by the artist’s virtual self, giving the viewer a little taste of the human element involved in the mechanics. The process then reverses itself until the windows are again left blank, ready for a new structure to be fabricated.
