C H R O M △ thesis : PRESS PLAY!

CHROMA is an art installation--a physical collage of moving images, video projection, photography, painting, and sculpture.  The projections are layered onto layered canvases (the back wall being the largest canvas), material on top of material; moving image on sculptural objects in space. The colliding forms, colors and imagery are abstracted within the content of the videos, paintings and photographs themselves as well as in physical form. The viewers’ spatial perception is challenged by the geometric shapes, some hindered from being complete shapes, and the push-and-pull of color fields. The abstracted video footage emphasizes color and light spatially, rather than as representational imagery, or something recognizable from the physical world. The same treatment can be said of the sound: In the enveloping space, you can hear the abstracted sound of static or waves, nothing pinned to specific imagery or association. The viewers hear sound, suggesting movement which could be the ocean or the wind, along with the sound of the three running projectors, activating the reality of the manual processes used to create this experience.
