Bright Canyon Showcase
October 9, 2014 @ 9:00 pm
Bright Canyon was originally conceived and presented as part of the Midnight Moment in Times Square throughout the month of July 2014. The work re-imagined the space as a gorge. Referencing the history of Times Square as the confluence of streams, its walls and screens were transformed into a canyon landscape, populated by a series of exuberant local animals. The cliffs were based on photos, drawings and videos taken in the Palisades along the Hudson River. The animated creatures based on animals observed in Central Park. By starting in the sky, descending the cliff and finally plunging into the river, the motion of the animation unifies variety of screens into a single, immersive environment.
Chris Doyle’s work is also on view as part of 21c Cincinnati’s current exhibition Hybridity: The New Frontier.
