FRAME SPACE A Camosun College Visual Arts Film and Video Art Exhibition Opening Wednesday December 13th at 5pm (Young Building Y111 & Y117)
Announcing the limited screening of 21 Video Art works and Short Films, created by 21 second year Visual Arts Students from the Fall 2017 Art 268, Video and Film Art class, for a 24hr period.
FRAME SPACE is a collection of explorations into the experience of moving images. Historically the Visual Arts Department has presented compilations of student Film / Video works in a ‘traditional’ theatre-based environment wherein viewers remained seated as student films were projected for their delight. This year, our students have created a variety of works that both fit into, and/or fracture what might be termed as normalized expectations of moving images. By presenting their works in a variety of arrangements from projection to monitor-based, the way one sees these works becomes as considered as the work itself. By choosing to exhibit these works in open exhibition spaces, viewers are freed from their seats and left to experience the works on their own terms, at their own pace and without a linear beginning or end. The frame in this instance becomes not just that of the image ratio (4:3, widescreen, etc.) but also the form of each project, and what it suggests or leaves for consideration, intellectually and emotionally; as viewers are invited to contemplate FRAME SPACE.
