"Traversing the Void: Synchronized Community Projects"

Garry B Fritz Imagemaker Award Winner

Saturday, March 24 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Bayview Room

Castleman's practice includes the production of video installations resulting from planned events. In these projects she utilized a consistent framework and set of rules for the production of the pieces. The system involves asking neighbors who live in adjacent housing blocks to allow her to place a camera in their homes to film each other simultaneously for a fixed length of time. Emerging from these experiments are simple conversations about and between neighbors. They allowed residents and neighbors to view and be viewed with tacit recognition and permission. They are artworks about neighbors discovering neighbors, looking at each other from across a void.
