Peepshow, Calgary, Alberta Canada Competition 2005
NEXUS weaves the past, present and future of Calgary into a visual/spatial event that changes a viewer's perception as s/he moves through it. The pavilion consists of two screens on a surface that folds into a space for each. Screen #1 projects the spontaneous ballet of visitors and passersby as shadow theater, while Screen #2displays video art. Images that evoke Calgary's cattle and oil history accent the folded surface, condensing into and dissolving out of focus with each step a visitor takes. As the city's individuals fold together to become Calgary, so to do the discreet elements converge into the unity of NEXUS.
