Project Series 37: Ben Dean” will be on view from November 1-December 21\, 2008\, at th e Pomona College Museum of Art in Claremont. An opening reception will be h eld at the Museum on Saturday\, November 1 from 5- 7 p.m.\, and Dean delivers a public lecture about his work on Monday\, November 10\, at 2:45 p.m.

F or “Project Series 37\,” Dean premieres the multimedia installation Acc ount and six related C-print photographs. Five years in the making\, < em>Account consists of a continuously looped dual projection\, both 16 mm film and video. The dual projection format stemmed from Dean’s fundament al question: “What would be revealed if two uncannily similar moving images \, each executed in a different media\, were placed side-by-side?”
 < br /> Dean chose three locations in the San Francisco area for this project : Islais Creek\, San Francisco City Hall and the Pacific Shores Center. To unify his project\, Dean filmed each site and digitally re-created each fil m using strict rules and parameters. Dean designed devices that he used dur ing the filming process—a protective framework for the camera and a catapul t\, among others.
 
With Account he interrogates how film and media change over time\, and how economic and social forces have e volved since the mid-19th-century. He explores how knowledge of spaces and places informs––or fails to inform––our understanding of them. The exhibiti on reflects Dean’s investigations into the history and theory of modernism\ , early film history\, Structural film\, video art\, and the growing preval ence of computer-generated imagery\, and its use as a surrogate or “improve ment” upon photography. Using film and new media technology as vehicles\, < em>Account explores visual and psychological perception\, modern tempo rality and the structural possibilities of film and video.
