Working Through Process: Collapsing Depth
Video Installation

118 - Proper Reserve
498 Queen Street West

The installation uses the interplay of light and shadow as a medium to watch and record time against the backdrop of a building facade. Day becomes night as night becomes day, revealing and rendering this everyday ephemera tangible.

As information is gathered, it is sequentially superimposed onto the physical site the information was originally derived from. The changing environmental conditions at the site and the layering of real and recorded time transform the depth of the facade's space with each instant of time that passes.

The process of both creating and presenting this work makes the perception of it constantly subject to change and to oscillation between varying spatial dimensions.
