documentation RT 6 minutes, multi-channel painting-in-motion video installation, dimensions variable, 2 minute loop, 2015
presented as an urban public project in Matsudo, Chiba, Japan on 2/20/15
exhibited as a three-evening solo exhibition at Gallery FAIR, Narita, Chiba, Japan from 2/24-26/15
Matt Sheridan’s final painting-in-motion projection in Matsudo, Japan for his artist residency at PARADISE AIR was a 3 channel affair entitled Vanishing Point (Make Waves). Presented across the triangular facade of the Morita Clinic during Friday night rush hour on 2/20/15, Vanishing Point was presented within a 45 minute time span as compared to the two hours allotted for previous works in Matsudo. Special thanks to PARADISE AIR director/curators Junpei Mori and Shoji Wataru, and Matsukai supporter Takahashi-san.
Sheridan was also grateful, through meeting Gallery FAIR curator/director Yusuke Shimura during a PARADISE AIR Salon, to be given the opportunity for a three-evening solo exhibition in Narita during which he projected 4 channels of Vanishing Point (one across the outer facade white cube and three inside the white cube of the gallery). The second half of the documentation details that installation, which occurred 2/24-26/15. This was among Sheridan’s favorite works made in Matsudo primarily because, as in Sheridan’s previous faves, it "is what it does" as reflected in its title.
