com'era, dov'era  

site-specific installation in Seattle’s King Street train station
digital animation, neon, silvered glass, sound

Created for Out of Sight, an independent satellite exhibition for the 2015 Seattle Art Fair, Com’era, Dov’era was installed in a disused stairwell at the base of the station’s clock tower, a structure modeled after the Campanile di San Marco in Venice.

In the installation, a projected video animation alternately ascends and descents the clock tower, exploring the repeated forms and unseen spaces in the otherwise empty structure. Created by taking nearly 2000 photographs of the tower’s interior, the digital animation is interrupted by hollow spaces, glitches, and errors in the modeling process (photogrammetry).

Opposing the video projection, a neon and mirrored glass sculpture echoes the forms and movement seen in the animation.
