Continuing her investigations into the sculptural application of time-based media, Linda Post creates a site-specific installation for the AC Institute’s Chapel space. Approach uses choreographed video to activate the long narrow room that dead-ends at an arched window. One approaches the work physically, as with sculpture. Phantom scenarios activate the simple act of walking into the space, approaching, engaging the work, and finally choosing to leave. These actions, the path available and the sound of movement in the space all become charged in the encounter.
