Spin is visible from both inside and outside, employing traditional stop motion animation techniques. The resulting projection combined with directed light from varying angles creates a dazzling prismatic image. It addresses the concepts of motion, light and sound and studies their distinctive qualities, combing them to produce a beautiful sensory experience. The projected animation reflects a complete 365 degree study of a multi-faceted mirrored ball in constant rotation. The projection faces King Street West and fills the window area of Wilfrid Laurier University's Toronto Office. The interior of the space is equipped with a variety of flat screen panels installed at various focal areas. These screens display alternate views of the mirrored ball and will run in conjunction with the main projection.
Bedford has exhibited in Canada and the US and holds a BA Communications Studies and Multimedia & Visual Art from McMaster University.
