Jim Campbell, Exploded View (Commuters)

This video was taken while at the Para Nadimi Gallery in December of Jim Campbell’s art piece Exploded View. I thought it was quiet miraculous how Campbell synchronized separate bulbs to collectively show an image when seen from a straight on. It was a new way of watching a video. While the image is still 2D, the medium is 3D. When you look at a side view of the bulb matrix the images are incomprehensible. It was a very calming piece, the bulbs were not overbearing and the image movements were not jerky. It seems like something I would find in a sit-down room.
