Anza-Borrego Expanded Landscape

Multi-channel video installation creating peep-show like, kaleidoscopic views of the Anza-Borrego Desert, installed in a storefront in Downtown Long Beach.
A multi-channel landscape video installation, this piece takes excerpts from a continuously panning video of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and provides glimpses into small parts of the image. These views are spread out, expanding the perceived size of the original video, and multiplied by virtue of being viewed through the mirror-like surface of black acrylic tubes. The view inside each tube consists of the clearly visible fragment of the landscape itself, surrounded by swirling concentric reflections that rotate and morph as the video image pans.

Installed in a storefront in Downtown Long Beach for the Phantom Galleries LA show Let There Be Light.
