Proposal Abstract

‘Eclipse/Phase’ invokes the complex interferences between human acts and natural forces, and suggests phases of climatic transformation that are intensifying. It is a video version of an immersive environment, a collaboration between the visual artist, Deborah Cornell, and the composer, Richard Cornell. The original ‘Eclipse Phase’ utilised print, video projection, and sound, exemplifying how multimedia may enhance and support visual print communication.

In the work, the human element indicates anthropogenic actions in nature—the slow and silent environmental impact on sectors such as migrating birds, and the devastating impacts of violent storms and flooding on human culture and well-being. Sources for visual imagery include NASA-based records of solar flares, celestial and climate diagramming, archaeological images, myths of flood from Babylonia, lunar phasing, and animations of solar shadowing.

‘Eclipse Phase’ expands on the dialogue between science and art, printed and moving images, and the deceptive colour conversation between pigment and light. In its original form ‘Eclipse Phase’ is an immersive experience that embeds print into an intermedia conversation. This original form includes an archival digital mural 8.5 x 13 feet, single-channel video (8:11 min.), and five-speaker surround sound, composed by sound artist Richard Cornell. It is an encompassing work that embeds the viewer in a transformative experience.

The current presentation is a document in video form of the immersive environment. The sound was composed as a spatial and surrounding event; thus this version should be viewed on as large a screen as possible, and with headphones.

Deborah and Richard Cornell are on the faculty of Boston University College of Fine Arts. Their collaborations have been presented worldwide, including New York Town Hall, Hafnarfjorder Museum of Art, Krakow Print Triennial, Taiwan Normal University, Kala Institute, Proyecto ACE Buenos Aires, Zayed University, Dubai, and Museum of Contemporary Art Hangzhou China among others.
