France and Switzerland Fall 2012

'My projection performances celebrate the incandescent beauty of 16 mm projectors and their role in driving desirable reactions in the metabolism of energy from one form to another. Light is modulated at the front gate by the limbic roll and chatter of loops patterned with emulsion. Once screened for the eye these patterns are commented on by the optical sound system from every corner of the room. Itinerate, the two projector works that accompany me on this tour accommodate themselves to any space and are measured only by attention. The territory of provisional occupancy by this work is well known but any familiar feature can become distorted making orientation difficult and likely to be abandoned. As they say, “How can something be missed if it never goes away?”' - Bruce McClure
