The 30-minute three-channel video installation is the cornerstone of the project, "It Never Rained on Rhodes" by New York artist Barry Salzman. It is designed to be shown in a room approximately 20-feet by 20-feet. Each video channel is designed to have a dedicated projection surface approximately 4-feet by 5-feet and has dedicated audio. In addition, two separate audio channels play voice-only tracks, which are used at times to surround the viewer with a community of background voices.
In this version of the video, adapted to facilitate viewing on Vimeo, the three separate projection surfaces are represented by three squares on a single screen. To optimize the viewing experience via Vimeo, please view in Full Screen mode and ensure the High Definition (HD) button is turned on.
To see this video in context of the overall project, including the composited photo mural in which I have recreated the idealized Rhodesli community that may have existed if not for the loss, fragmentation and destruction it experienced, please see the two-minute previsualization video of the full installation at:
