Leanne Eisen: Scan
Pikto Gallery 55 Mill Street, building 59 – 103, Toronto
November 1 – 16, 2011
Opening Reception: November 4, 6-10 PM
Scan, at Pikto Gallery marks my first ever solo exhibition and foray into new media installation, with my new piece while (true).
while (true), consisting of a scanner, a computer monitor and an flat screen television, will create a real-time animation that will be left running the duration of the two week exhibition, from November 1st – 16th. With each progressive scan, the computer monitor will be updated, then re-scanned, creating a feedback loop. The television will play an animated loop created from the scanned frames updating it in real-time.
The exhibition will also include Scan, a series “exploring the aesthetic effects of movement and reflection in a digital technology that renders the material into data. The resulting works resemble ethereal landscapes, floating apparitions or maybe distant galaxies, however the pieces are more than merely finding shapes in the clouds, there is the presence of sheer volumes of space and distance, and the photographic feeling of capturing the image of something living and breathing. The images stimulate more questions than answers, with the viewer unable to come to any concrete conclusions about the works, leaving them in a sublime limbo.” (Zachary Eastwood-Bloom)
Here’s some work-in-progress for while (true):
