Present Interval/Intervalo en el Presente
A Public Art Video Installation Project
“Present Interval” is part of the “Circling the Issue” series of public art projects that reflect on the inner lives we lead while going about our daily routines. Using video projectors, Roblest will broadcast his signature form of videoart (a subgenre know as videopoetry) onto buildings in the alley behind Sun Trust Bank’s Adams Morgan branch. Images will pan left and right across the curved back wall of the bank building using a motorized mirror system custom-built by the project’s technical advisory, Joseph Kinnard, a research scientist at the National Institute for Standards and Technology. Additional projectors will throw moving images against other walls in the alleyway, transforming this much-traversed public space with a kaleidoscope of images and sound.
