Installation, 2003

The viewer is first confronted with a small screen inset into the gallery wall. On the screen there is a land/seascape of indeterminable size that either seems to be approaching the viewer or the viewer is flying forward over it. Then proceeding around a corner, the machinations of the image are revealed. A large grid-work platform twenty-one feet (7meters) long and ten feet (3.2 meters) wide is suspended four feet (1.3 meters) above the floor. The surface of the platform has been covered loosely with a sheet of thin plastic. Formations in the plastic are rising, falling and moving from one end of the platform to the other where a camera sits gathering the real-time video for the small screen. The formations are caused by a grid work of two hundred and twenty 4-inch computer fans blowing upwards from under the plastic. Upon further investigation the viewer can see a second screen with another live camera feed from a second hidden camera looking at people moving through the original space with the small inset screen and how their position and motion determines the formations of the land/seascapes through on and off operation of the fans.
