Abstract

We live in a society not only dominated by the screen but increasingly colonized by multiple moving-image ‘screens’. This article investigates aspects of the phenomenon of viewing multi-channel animated work that coexists with architecture. Referencing historic projections, such as Glimpses of the USA by Charles and Ray Eames (1959) as well as my own animated installations, I raise questions on how the brain may be processing multiple images and explore the concept of light in a window from the perspective of Gaston Bachelard and Thomas Kincaid in order to suggest differences between projecting on or projecting from – a difference between emanation and reflection. The article closes with brief thoughts on the window – illusion and collapse of 3D space, the image and the archetype and the idea of spectacle with content.
