Filmmakers Véréna Paravel, RI '13 and Lucien Castaing-Taylor RI '10 collaborated on the award-winning movie Leviathan (2012). With this video installation, they rework the sequences from that movie that were shot in and from the sea, creating an archaeology of both the ocean and the image. Projected at 1/50 of the speed at which they were recorded, it simultaneously slows movement and animates the still, revealing a liminal universe at the threshold of human vision. In this flux, one beholds a netherworld of aqueous forms that appear in one frame and disappear or transmogrify into something else in the next.
The exhibit is in the first floor gallery of Byerly Hall at 8 Garden Street, Radcliffe Yard, Cambridge, MA 02138.
The exhibit will open with a reception at 5 p.m. on March 12.
From March 13 to March 29, the exhibit will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
