Even though the Samek will be closed for the winter break, that does not mean we won’t me showing any art! On display on the Video Wall, just outside our main doors, will be projected “Sunrise Over Rockefeller Center” a video work by the artist Anne Spalter.
This work will be on display from December 6, 2011 to January 26, 2012. Spalter’s work is inspired by technological and man-made landscapes. She looks for a way to bring order to these irregular and at times chaotic spaces, such as New York city or multi-lane highways. She achieves this through the kaleidoscopic video compositions, the result of using digital recording and computational image processing.
In this work Spalter focuses on iconic New York City landmarks, including Rockefeller Center. She captured her footage from the 45th floor of an apartment building in order to bring aerial-style footage to the work and to capture the movements of cars and pedestrians in the architectural environment.
The work is hypnotizing and we strongly encourage you to pop on up to the Samek Art Gallery this holiday season to check out this great piece!
