PERSISTENCE OF VISION
Latitude 53, Edmonton, AB
December 8th 2017 - January 20th 2018
Persistence of Vision is a low-fi/sci-fi installation project rooted in syzygy, lunar cycles, cosmic alignment, hoaxes, mercerism and eusocial insects (ants, bees, termites..). The installation presents a series of cycling videos and procedurally generated terrain housed within a large octagonal monolith. Akin to the Kaiserpanorama, once used to display a series of motorized stereoscopic photos. Throughout the length of the exhibition viewers are able to craft their own experience and emotional response using different facets of the installation. Each change and input affecting the experience for all viewers involved. Persistence of Vision takes its name from the optical illusion that occurs within the brain when observing repeating images.
