Daniel Young & Christian Giroux: Film Path / Camera Path, with under-titles
InterAccess is pleased to present an experimental media artwork by the celebrated Canadian duo Daniel Young & Christian Giroux. This exciting new project, Film Path / Camera Path, with under-titles, merges Young & Giroux’s sculpture practice with film installation using high tech design and manufacturing technologies.
Film Path / Camera Path, with under-titles collides the projected image with the apparatus of its presentation and the moving image with sculpture. The project started with the concept of a motion picture projection where the path of the film is the same as the camera path and is composed into knot. A sculptural materialization of the film loop is made possible by complex multi-planer geometric modelling, parametric design and additive manufacturing. The 35mm projector presents a one-minute long loop of a camera’s travel along the film path. Accompanying the projection is an LED text screen that displays under-titles prepared for the artwork by poets, theorists, and artists.
Film Path / Camera Path, with under-titles was produced with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Media Initiatives Grant, and will tour to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria following its presentation at InterAccess.
The work will be presented at InterAccess from March 6 – May 4, 2019, with an opening reception on March 6 from 7pm-9pm.
