Mobile video installation in public space: The team
In Shanghai Night Watch was part of Intrude 366, an ambitious year long public art project organized by the Zendai MoMA. This iteration of Night Watch launched as a true "intrusion" into public space. When permission to project the video suddenly was refused without explanation curator Biljana Ciric and the artist decided to go "unofficial" and mobile. |
Strategic sites were identified and a van equipped with a generator, video projector and a team of 7 was made operational. We activated 7 sites in 2 nights. The process of parking the van on the sidewalk, rolling out the generator on a dolly, setting up the projector, focusing and masking the video image turned out to be a fairly smooth operation.
