Outside/In (2013)

Outside/In was a multi-channel, site-specific, audio/video project premiering at Studio 1469 in Wahsington D.C. in August 2013 as part of “Body of Work,” a three person show curated by Faith Flanagan.

The project involved one large scale (approx. 16’x9′) video projection in a gallery space and a second video projection with audio in a smaller, attached room . The project’s larger projection took up an entire wall in the gallery space and shared that space with artists Jenny Walton and Evan Hume.

Below are some of the sketches and a variety of other materials involved with the making of this project.

This sketch showed an option I considered whereby the full 16x9 projection for the external (or "fantasy") portion of the project extended from one wall to the edge of a door. The part of the projection which was my head would actually be projected onto cloth hanging from the ceiling, slit down the center allowing people to walk "into" my head to go to the other room and see the other part. This represents the true ideal of Outside/In but would have required a ceiling mount for this projection channel which was not possible.
