5 channel video and sound installation, large white-walled gallery, dimensions variable, 2013
Granite translates and adapts an experience from the phenomenological world to the gallery space causing the gallery to oscillate randomly between white cube and black box. Multiple landscapes randomly framed with infrared cameras are revealed and disappear in an instant, illuminated by flashes of a rainless electrical storm. The flashes are programmed and animated to be random and sporadic, creating an indeterminate and disjointed rhythm, the white walls of the gallery reflecting the white flashing light. The format and display of the black and white landscapes echo the layout of a landscape gallery of a neo-classical museum.
first installed: Kasseler Kunstverein, Museum Fridericianum, Kassel 2013
