SCAN (at HERE ARTS CENTER)
A triptych version of the SCAN installation (Liverpool, 2008), remade and shown at Here Arts Center in NYC, 2009.
SCAN is an experimental and site-specific cine-city installation.
Using the inspired Art Deco futurism of the Mersey Tunnel Air Vent building as a departure point, SCAN explores the building as a breathing organism and cinematic space/structure. The ventilation function of the Air Vent building – the cleansing of air within a system – struck us as a beautiful metaphor for life and the act of breathing. We draw on links between cinema, architecture, urban movement, and two cities on the transmitting and receiving ends of urban migratory history: Liverpool and New York City.
SCAN (Liverpool, 2008) was in collaboration with and Jeff Morey/NOMO and Jacqueline Passmore.
Additionally, SCAN was shown as a large-scale projection at 3LD Art & Technology Center in December 2008.
