> DESCRIPTION

Featured in Gallery 2 is a show entitled Video Vault which explores four different perspectives of subjects set within specific landscapes.  Barry Anderson’s new digital animation entitled Nightrover offers a voyeuristic vantage point beneath baron trees and leafy shrubs seen against the slow moving night sky.  The viewer is placed within a magical constructed environment that is populated with art historical and vintage Americana forms.  In contrast, William Edwards documentary style video The Aftermath follows his partner’s every move through the crowded streets during the annual Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco.  The video is shot as a still by still animation stylized in black with neon colored outlines and accompanied digital sound.  Also shot in an urban landscape, John Jurayj’s single channel video Untitled (Beirut Ferris Wheel) displays mirrored imagery taken while riding the world famous Ferris wheel at Beirut’s Luna Park with manipulated sound. Constructed in the mid-twentieth century, the iconic Ferris wheel survived the Lebanese civil war and was in near continuous operation throughout the strife and chaos thus becoming a symbol of perseverance and strength.  The final piece entitled Rear View by Rebeca Bollinger combines ceramics, string, Plexiglas and video to challenge the perception of surface.  At times the imagery seen on the monitor is an abstracted extension of the actually materials used to make the sculpture thus creating a sense of movement with the use of playful shapes and color.
