Computer, computer script, video projector, and haze machine,
50 minute cycle in six parts
June 9 — September 30, 2007
Anthony McCall and Imi Knoebel both have used deceptively simple projections with strikingly complex effects. You and I, Horizontal (2005), a digital projection — and recent SFMOMA acquisition — by McCall, draws on his 1970s-era solid-light film installations to create an engaging experience of light as a three-dimensional beam and wall animation. Projektion X (1971-72) and Projektion X Remake (2005), two versions of the same video concept by Knoebel, each feature a continuous stream of nighttime streetscapes, illuminated only by a powerful X-shaped beam of light.
