Island, 2007, Solo exhibition at Big Orbit gallery, Buffalo, NY, US (Seven channel site-specific video installation with sound) ( 30 x 25 x 12 ft.)
Projections of heavy rain scenes surround the walls of a dark gallery. In the centre of the space a temporary shelter sits on wheels. The outside is covered with corrugated metal and the inside is lined with white tile. Fluorescent tubes light the inside as a shower head rains water from the ceiling, which goes down a drain. An invisible pump re-circulates the water in a closed system of re-circulation. A small window is the only access into the space. A loud all-encompassing recording of heavy rain is played for 3-minute intervals, with a 15 second pause. The sound of the shower is suppressed by the loudness of the rain and is only audible once the rain has ceased.
