Not water, so not relevant to your post, but spectacular nevertheless. Gary Hill's "Frustrum" involved, among other things, a 23' x 33' pool of black oil beneath a projection of a giant animated golden eagle. In the middle of the pool was a 12" x 7" brick of 24 karat gold bullion (it was stolen during the 2006 exhibition at the Cartier Foundation in Paris).

  Dear Frameworks,

  I am still working on my dissertation re: physical water within expanded cinema. Unfortunately there is an extreme lack of information about some of the artist I have found and believe me I have JSTOR, Wilson Web’ed and Googled!

  Caroline Locke’s “Breath” (2002)?

  If you have seen this work could you answer a few questions?

  Can you hear the sound of the heartbeat in the gallery space?

  In the Aluminium tanks I am presuming there is a vortex of water??

  How then does the sound of the heartbeat affect the water?

  Is there the equivalent of a hammer that copies the heartbeat or is it the physical sound vibrations that affect the water i.e are there speaker inside the tank?

  There is also a mention of video loops.

  What are the images on the video loops?

  What surface are the video loops projected onto?

  Alexander Hahn “On the nature of things” (1996)

  I have watched the video of this installation on ‘Vimeo’ and have information about the work however, I noticed on the list of materials is 1 Projector.

  What was the projector projecting and onto what surface was it projecting?

  I have basic descriptions of the following installations;

  Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s “Pulse Tank” (2008)

  Michael Brown “Turbulent Landscapes” (1996) and “Meanderings” (1993)

  Lulu Quinn “Jetty Greenwich Millennium village” London (2008)

  Pearl Hirshfield, various installations “Autumn”, “Summer”, etc (1984)

  Jim Hamlyn “1728sqft, 16070Ltrs” (1991) and “Broken English” (1993)

  David Hall “Narcissus I” and “Narcissus II” (1976)

  If you have seen these installations, I would be grateful if you would write a review of your experience of the work.

  Thank you all in advance.
