Comprising five large monitors mounted in varied orientations along the front and back side of a vertical aluminum truss, the piece will assume the representational form of a lighthouse. High resolution source footage the artist shot of bodies of water from geopolitically diverse points around the world will harmoniously meld with actual shore rocks into a compelling and multifaceted digital megalith. An intermittent focal point on the top monitor will serve as a simultaneous beacon of hope and an all-seeing, Foucauldian eye.
Welcome/Warning is part Threshold, an exhibition curated by Kurt McVey as part of On Canal.
