Site Specific Video Projection (2016)
10 minute (looping)
There Is Only This Dark is a collaboration with sculptor JoAnna Commandaros that fills the enormous St. Gilles facade in the Hall of Architecture with projections of plaster sculptures coming to life. Using ultra-slow motion video, time is arrested and small gestures are isolated, as cracks form and bodies break free from their hardened shells.
