Installation View (2015)
Interactive Web site, Written Essay in HTML and PDF formats
Single Channel Video, 3 min, 54 sec
For a show at Artifact gallery in the Lower East Side of New York City (March 4 - 22, 2015), I used digital software to enhance photographic documentation of the very space in which the exhibition was held, highlighting the differences between the reality of the space and the enhanced photographs, which include virtual artwork displayed on the walls. The video installation in the gallery documents the enhancement process.
The gallery exhibition will be accompanied by an interactive Web site, installationview.com, which will incorporate the writing, video and images made for the project.
If an art exhibition is mounted and no one witnesses it, did it occur? With the installation view exhibition and essay, I argue that a show is better viewed on the Internet, and through a set of perfectly tuned images.
