Pathways

An installation which required the viewer to walk beneath it, activating the film loop. While the viewer's position could remain static after activating the installation, the film displayed various methods of moving from a fixed vantage point. This placed the viewer in a position fluctuating between represented space and actual space: within the film, behind the camera, and among the installation and gallery itself. The film was conceived and shot during the Artists at the Armory residency, Sydney Olympic Park, Australia in 2007.

Specifications: Super 8 film, reels, wood, tape, cloth, hardware, projector, motion sensor.
