Window Gazing, site-specific video projection installation, Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University, Sherbrooke, Québec, 2 videos, silent, 50 min. looped.
Produced during a residency at Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Québec. I spent a week inside Bandeen Hall — the University’s beautiful 19th century music hall, gazing out its magnificent windows. Videos were recorded during the period of sunset on different days, featuring different views looking through and onto the windows. As the sun goes down outside, the lights come up in the hall, exposing the inner architecture. In the video image we see this slow and subtle change of light both through, and reflected onto the window, in real time, while the window itself continues to reflect its surroundings, adding its own dynamic layer to the imagery. These videos were projected onto the windows for an outdoor audience, beginning at sunset each night of the group exhibition, Time Inside the Image.
Made for and exhibited at Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University, Sherbrooke, Québec, 2007.
