Light Spill: An Installation by Gibson + Recoder

Memorial Art Gallery
Wednesday, March 22, 2017
All Day

For the collaborative artists Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, a film is not an event that unfolds over time, but a particular material experience.

In the two works on view, Light Spill and Threadbare, the artists dismantle the components of the filmmaking system (celluloid, projector, screen, and light) and recombine them in new ways. As Gibson’s and Recoder’s work suggests, film is not only about images, storytelling and entertainment, but also possesses optical, mechanical, and sculptural dimensions.
