Abstract:
“Hundredweight” is a 6 channel video installation of fixed-camera documentation of 2-D and 3-D events performed by the collaborating artists. It consists of 36 sections shown on 6 monitors. Building on previous work but directly addressing painting and drawing using a single fixed camera position. The construction of the work allows the viewer to watch all six screens of individual action simultaneously; but also to focus on individual actions. Using a single set with a fixed camera position allows a play between space (the architectural set) and time; all the actions take place in the same space but at different times. The overhead camera position flattens the three dimensional space reducing the architecture to a plan, emphasising the action’s relationship to painting and drawing. The 36 sections are subdivided into six groups, lighting, drawing, static, etc each one looking at a specific art historical or architectural element.
