17 Days Video Series

17 Days is a video series, curated by Adriane Little, for the Atrium Gallery at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts at Western Michigan University. The concept is that there are 17 Days paired with 17 video artists. One artist’s video work per selected day will play continuously and simultaneously on both of the 50” plasma screens, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, located at the front entrance of the Richmond Center for Visual Art in the Atrium Gallery. 17 Days began with the spring 2008 semester and then continues in the spring semesters going forward.

The Tower Trilogy:

” The succession of images in these videos are very jolting, along with the music it out me on edge, and I didn’t exactly know what was going on in them. The building of the noise and the alarms in the background, as they got louder the tension heightened but there was no release.
I liked the element of the hand in them, the fact that she drew or scratched and then overlayed it made an interesting visual experience of texture, light and shadow. It began to take on an abstract effect with barely recognizable images which added a very interesting element to the videos.”

“I think that this video is an example of how we bring our own visual baggage to everything we watch. I founds this every intriguing, but the use of the chess board and and altered, but still recognizable chess pieces, as well that the dream-like aesthetic made me thing a of dark Alice and Wonderland. I’m not sure if it was intentional or even if there is a conscious acknowledgment of it…”
