this discussion brings to mind an amazing projection
preformance i saw at pittsburgh filmmakers this past
winter by SANDRA GIBSON and LUIS RECODER. for this
show they presented about 6 pieces which utilized the
projector/projection as a main component of the visual
experience. they opened by projecting light through
glass with a vaporizer causing condensation to build
up on the glass which created a very subtle change in
the quality of light on screen.
i believe they live in new york, but have presented
their work internationally.
