Over the past four years, Greenspan’s projects have been a combination of real-life video footage, sampled sound, videos of fabricated virtual spaces and real-space installations. In the installations sculptural objects are built in close proximity to the video projection they carry and with attention to viewers movements and position. Materials appear in the installations both as a real building material and as components in the video realm. The use of materials such as PVC, Foam-board, Plywood or carpets acts as a physical stimulator and a carriers of cultural charge and common taste. Subjects as intimacy, order, emotional flood and simultaneous existence of the real and imagined within transitional spaces are raised. The artificial environment tends to have more physical regularity, both spatially and over time, with natural environments tending to have both irregular structures, and structures that change over time.
The Institute for Electronic Art’s Experimental Projects Residency is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and the Schein-Joseph Endowment.
