Depth of Field

July 2, 2015 at Dusk
Projected on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage (Anchorage Place at Pearl St in DUMBO)
Curators: Leo Kuelbs with Farkas Fulop

Artists: Thomas Draschan, Glowing Bulbs, John Ensor Parker, Vadim Schaeffler and Ryan Uzilevsky

Using work from two shows originally presented in 2010, July’s LIGHT YEAR: “Depth of Field,” considers the long view. Five single-channel videos (four of which were previously presented on the bridge as part of “The Endless Bridge,” and one from “The Decelerator”) give us an opportunity to look back and compare our experiences then with our lives now. This look back through time includes the first mapped piece presented in DUMBO, as well as the first released footage of the Gulf Coast oil leak. LIGHT YEAR: “Depth of Field” serves as an encore for some of the best single-channel videos every presented on the bridge, as well as an invitation to look through time and consider what has changed and what has remained.
