“pinching the light fantastic”

A video installation event, happening in two parts,

February 5th, and 24th, 2010

 
 




“pinching the light fantastic”


To bend light with a body, distorting the perceptions of believed realities, seeing and not seeing, enlightened and confused at once.


The installation featured video, surveillence cameras, projectors and mirrors.

The reflected and transmitted light, off the viewers body, into the camera, through the projector, reflected off the mirror and the wall; to look, to see and be seen by others, the light received by the eye, processed by the brain, to what effect?  Is there a difference between looking and seeing?


The happening was broadcast live on http://www.ustream.tv , search the title to find the video.  This was the first time trying this alter-media with my artworks. (with varying success...)
