October 2005

My friends Lara and Ann held occasional salons, where they invited people to come and share their art. Lara's father put large sliding frosted-glass doors in the apartment when he built it. I visited them shortly before their october salon in order to see about projecting something through the glass doors, wondering what it would look like, and what piece to show. They had recently been given some art, and were trying to figure out what to do with it - a few paintings and many drawings, mostly anatomical drawings of the sort one makes when studying figurative art. All of the art was signed simply "Maria". I decided to take some pictures and shoot some video of the drawings and use them as the basis for a new piece.

After digitally manipulating the images, I animated them, and made four interdependent channels of video which were then projected onto each frame of the doors.
