Live Cinema/ Tim Hyde
March 20, 2009 – June 20, 2009
This installment of Live Cinema focuses on the work of Brooklyn-based artist Tim Hyde who employs video and photography to investigate the relationship between time and architecture. For Hyde, architectural spaces are experienced and transformed in time by those who inhabit them, a concept translated visually by the use of time-based mediums - video and collaged photography. The urban architecture and its presence in the mental landscape of city dwellers hold an equally important place in Hyde’s investigation as he attempts to capture the inconspicuous changes in its details. This exhibition includes a new series of photographic collages and a selection of single- and multiple-channel videos. Please Note:
