We thank all who joined in sharing their visions on the topic of time and transformation. We map change because:
- we cannot stop time but we can alter our path within it
- our voices and visions matter
- we understand how beautiful, complex and painful change is
- we know art has purpose and is very important to our lives
- we believe in the importance of collaboration
How do you map change?
Tempo & Transition included animation and video created in a variety of materials and by a variety of artists responding to the theme of time and change. The exhibition features several devices emulating pre-cinema mechanisms including a large-scale zoetrope, a video peep show, and Pedal Arcade a combination of a bicycle and cinema viewer. All apparatuses constructed by Rachel Siegel; and the electronics & programming on Pedal Arcade generously designed and built by Richard Armstrong.
Artwork was presented in one of three modes: 1) a sequence of images (a filmstrip) to play on a large-scale zoetrope 2) a flipbook 3) a short video (30 seconds) displayed in the peep show and on Pedal Arcade.
We are grateful for all those that have contributed!
