I am working on the creation of a video installation for an exhibit that will be shown as part of the Cultural Encounters Fridays programming series in March of 2011.
I have been developing the written script that will guide the filming of the installation video. I hope very much to engage the landscape as part of my installation. I hope by incorporating the landscape, that place where the museum and nature meet, will create a unique sensation for the viewer when standing before the installation panels and looking at the view from the tower.
As part of my commission piece, I have been photographing the grounds of the museum over the last year and a half. Sales from the ‘Relations’ photo series help fund the installation work.
Over the next several months leading up to the exhibit, I will write more about the influences weaving into the installation and the creative process.
