four-channel video installation

Continuing my exploration with the idea of parallel universes, this piece turns Sheep Meadow (in Central Park) into a field of layered universes. The last aspect of post-production was done at an artist in residency at the Experimental Television Center in Owego, New York. Having access to unique analog equipment such as Dave Jone’s colorizer and Nam June Paik’s ‘wobulator’ made all the difference in finishing this project. The installation consists of four channels of video, with Out of Focus wall sculptures (0-1 dimension).
