This short documentary features images from the show as well as from the work in progress of a multimedia, site specific project I have designed and implemented at the University of Richmond in April 2013 with the help and the participation of the students of my “Interdisciplinary Seminar: video projection and installation” course.
The title “Liminal Variance” symbolizes the concept underlying the site-specific show. The aim was to transform the space given and create an immersive experience for the viewers, encouraging them to contemplate the idea of the “in-between”, whether this represented the alteration of a physical state or a formal representation of stillness versus motion.
The project utilized a variety of projection surfaces as well as sculptural elements created by the students. Videos were created with different modalities according to the specific skills and preferences of the students, offering a wide range of techniques from photo based slide show to live action and abstract animation.
Different corners of the gallery offered different possibilities of interaction for the viewers, including a sound station that produced a modular sound track, which could be enhanced or modified by the viewer according to his perception of the surrounding environment.
