This is one of three videos which were projected, all at the same time, purposefully of different lengths and thus not synchronized (and including some long still shots and fades) and from different angles, at CHRCH Project Space ( facebook.com/pages/C-H-R-C-H-project-space/277145169084526 ) as part of "It's a Big World in There," in July, 2014. This was a collaborative installation/event, with sculpture by Kate Hamilton (katehamiltonstudio.com/ ) and music by Jonathan Elliott ( jonathanelliott.net/ ) that came about after Kate was invited to be a resident at CHRCH Project Space, sponsored by Women's Studio Workshop ( wsworkshop.org/ ). More information, including a video made by Stephen Blauweiss during the event can be seen at chronogram.com/hudsonvalley/video-kate-hamiltons-its-a-big-world-in-there/Content?oid=2270653
The video, which was projected in a small church, onto Hamilton's large-scale white clothing, includes verbal and visual quotes from Herman Melville's Moby Dick, from the windows of the church and from Edweard Muybridge's photographs.
