Artifact is a video and sound representation of the experience of light and time at Summer Lake, Oregon. The components were collected during a residency at PLAYA. The process of choosing what to record became a conversation with the surrounding geography, and the unique quality of color, light, and time that happens in this worn volcanic landscape. Our ‘moment’ of collection is where the creation of an artifact begins. The artifact then continues to morph through human interventions (video and sound editing). The sense of time and place is then completed through the viewer.
Studio M13 (Stephen Miller and Lisa DeGrace) creates installation and performance work, utilizing the building blocks of light, geometry, sound and elemental nature to reflect human narrative and mood. See studiom13.com for more. Stephen is Art Director at Skylab Architecture, which has commissioned this work for the Portland Winter Light Festival.
