Shifting Time – San Jose in The Silicon Valley Wire

Nov 23, 2010

 

Camille’s new public art work, Shifting Time – San Jose, is featured in The Silicon Valley Wire’s most recent Newsletter. View a PDF of the article here.

Shifting Time – San Jose is an interactive video installation that juxtaposes the past and present, where the viewer’s body becomes the interface to navigate between.  In this piece, commissioned by the City of San Jose for the new terminal of the San Jose International airport, viewers encounter a projected still image.  As they walk closer to the projection wall, the surface disrupts, pushing deeper into time in the pre-recorded video clips.  Archival film footage blends with high-definition footage from the present, and viewers are able to travel back and forth through time by moving towards and away from the projection wall.
