D R I F T (exterior view, Hyde Park Art Center)
A collaboration with Jesse McLean
, D R I F T mixes unique and exciting visuals with historically significant information. Wireless video cameras attached to weather balloons were employed to transmit an expanding view of significant Hyde Park locations, acknowledging the rich, diverse and sometimes hidden history embedded within this neighborhood. The project was designed specifically for display on the Jackman Goldwasser Catwalk gallery, an eighty-foot media facade located at the Hyde Park Art Center.
D R I F T (video detail - excerpt: The Midway Plaisance)
This excerpt depicts the Midway Plaisance, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1871 and served as a center of amusements during the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. In five separate takes, we captured the entirety of this one mile long plot of land, and then presented a composite of this fractured portrait.
