Comprising five large monitors mounted in varied orientations along the front and back side of a vertical aluminum truss, the piece takes the representational form of a lighthouse.
High resolution source footage that I shot of bodies of water from geopolitically diverse points around the world harmoniously meld with actual shore rocks and discarded bricks into a multifaceted digital megalith. An intermittent focal point on the top monitor serves as a simultaneous beacon of hope and an all-seeing, Foucauldian eye.
Welcome/Warning was part of Threshold, an exhibition curated by Kurt McVey as part of On Canal.
On Canal is an initiative to turn Canal Street in Manhattan into an arts district comprised of 22 spaces by Wallplay and curated by Vibes.
