Mikel Rouse's Video Installation "Hemisphere" at The Townsend Austin
Hemisphere is a site-specific video installation designed for The Townsend Austin. The installation was conceived after a number of preliminary visits to gauge the room atmosphere and décor. Images were chosen and adjusted to reflect various viewing positions within the space as well as the lighting environment in the room. The pictures consist of altered views offering a slightly skewed reflection of the common place. It is hoped that the effect will be one of ‘moving paintings’.
I’m grateful to Steven Weisburd and Kathy Valentine for their support of this work in particular and of the arts in Austin, TX.
