Five Windows is a multi-channel video installation presented at street level by the Northside Townhall. The project explores the fluid nature of urban space through a series of static, voyeuristic shots looking through windows into public and private spaces. As a series of protagonists go through banal routines in each window, their surroundings slowly morph to transcend time and alter perception. Periodically the windows present a unified image to suggest the fluid, evolving nature of urban residents. The videos are projected on a series of salvaged windowpanes, suspended on varied planes throughout the space and accompanied by a live score.
This event is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
