Video installation by Kim Roberts.
September 25th – November 29th 2007
The piece, called “Focus on the Family”, interweaves videotaped stories into several video projections that illuminate the gallery…
Draped in the cloak, the viewer approaches a projector, which is surrounded by mirrors, and begins to see the video image. The visitor’s cloaked body has now become the projection screen.
With arms outstretched to create a viewing surface for the video, and gazing into the mirror, visitors of the gallery are confronted with stories of victims, families and friends who have experienced a murder, assault or intimidation against their loved ones.
