LIGHT YEAR is an ongoing project presented by 3_Search  in collaboration with the DUMBO Improvement District and NYC DOT. Originally created in celebration of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the Year of Light and Light Art, LIGHT YEAR has hosted the work of over 100 artists and curators from around the world.

For its 13th edition, artists Tamas Veszi and Daniela Kostova are curating a unique program in a particular format for showcasing large-scale video in public space. The Manhattan Bridge becomes both a vehicle and structural element of the presentation as videos are projected directly onto the bridge’s surface. 

The pieces I'll be showing, from my Video Paint Series, establish a space in which memory becomes an action that is constantly actualized in the present. Using paint as a video tool, the videos activate archival footage, thus exploring methods of physically representing the collection of memories as an embodied experience.

Work by: Andrea Wolf, Jennifer Dalton, Cliff Evan’s, Eva Davidova, George Peck, Adam Frelin, Andras Borocz
Curated by Tamas Veszi and Daniela Kostova
Co-presented with the DUMBO Improvement District
