SPIN II for RMG Exposed
Guests to RMG Exposed on November 14, 2015 (The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa, ON) were greeted by a special artist project by Katrina Jennifer Bedford in the RMG’s inspired lobby space.
SPIN II is a site-specific, projection-based installation of an animated disco ball that utilizes traditional stop-motion animation techniques. Through this large scale installation Katrina Jennifer Bedford explores the concepts of motion and light. Each of these elements denotes distinctive qualities yet, when combined together produce a stunning sensory experience. This work was originally exhibited in Toronto’s Nuit Blanche in 2012.
A limited edition artist print of the project will be available for $50 in support of the RMG’s community outreach programs. The 8×12″ fine art prints are printed with archival ink on 100% cotton Hahnemïhle photo rag.
