The Veiling (Videotape/Installation)

Images of a man and a woman moving through a series of nocturnal landscapes are projected into parallel layers of loosely suspended translucent cloth.

They each appear on separate opposing video channels, and are seen gradually moving from dark areas of shadow into areas of bright light.

The cloth material diffuses the light and the figures dissipate in intensity and focus as they penetrate further into the scrim layers, eventually intersecting each other on the central veil.
