Cosmopolis, outdoor video projection, Kensington Market, Toronto, 18 min. 44 sec.
Film footage from the 1980’s television series “Cosmos” is used to create a montage-style narrative of the history of the natural world, transforming the architectural dome onto which it is projected into an outdoor planetarium. This piece was viewed from the top of a five story outdoor parking garage, bringing the audience to eye-level with the dome. The universe lights up the background in ongoing lightning strikes of approval. Wow.
Invited as the guest visual artist, Cosmopolis was made for and exhibited at Up Darling contemporary dance series on June 5th, 2008.
