Lynn Bianchi, The Pool, 2015, rendering of the multimedia triptych, w:42’’ h:28’’ d:5’’ each, (w:128’’ h:28’’ d:5’’ overall), 11min, loop, color, sound.
Video excerpt: 3min.
This triptych is composed of layered photographs on a plexiglass superimposed onto three digital monitors displaying video with sound. The work incorporates unusual depth and monumental dimensions in order to achieve a particularly emotional effect.
“This work came from my fascination watching people exercise at a Senior complex pool. Uninhibited, they graciously gave each other space and allowed themselves freedom to move unselfconsciously, exercising for hours on end, performing something that to my eye looked like a beautiful dance. I was the anonymous onlooker.”
