The project asks - what is the structure of
a glimpse? What do we see when we’re not really looking, in transit
and in passing, and can the slight flicker at the corner of one’s eye
be an interstice from which to re-perceive and reinterpret. Michael
Damm's most recent films are addressed to an audience in transit. Two of the artist's recent videos will be projected from the second floor windows of the building that houses Invisible Venue. Both
projections will be visible from passing BART trains and to passersby
in the street somewhat randomly during evening hours, and will provide
a fleeting experience to jostle the often mindless experience of the
daily commute. A simultaneous street-visible projection will be
presented by David Cunningham Projects in San Francisco on Folsom
Street (between 15th and 16th Streets).
