Propitious Stars - Master of the Staring Eye

(2007, 6:00' loop, 3 channel HD video mural)

 

Ultra wide format video mural created by 3 adjoining, synchronized HD video projections. It was first shown in conjunction with the 2007 festivities honoring the Schifanoia frescoes in Ferrara, Italy. A digital adoption of the "Labours of the Months," the cycles in Medieval and early Renaissance art depicting in twelve scenes the monthly activities of humans and gods, it is a short fragment of a single channel HD video, that is still languishing in production.
