Magali Duzant's Live Streaming Sunset In Long Island
23 dec 2015 by art:i:curate team
To coincide with the solstice - the longest sunset on the shortest day of the year - art:i:curate artist Magali Duzant is screening her video installation Live Streaming Sunset on a one day event at Local Project in Long Island City.
'Live Streaming Sunset' is a work-in-progress expanding with each showing with an ultimate goal of streaming a full 24 hour live sunset tracked across the globe.
Magali's video installation consists of a series of projected projects that track the sunset across the globe, creating an ongoing 24 hour setting sun, an eternal present. The piece in its latest showings captures sunsets in multiple time zones across the continental US and beyond, tracking the sun in real time, switching zones right before it disappears from the sky.
This video installation is fiscally sponsored by NYFA and is shown in expanded form thanks in part to the generous support from a 2015 Queens Council on the Arts grant.
Live Streaming Sunset will be screened on the 22nd of December from 7:30am to 9pm at Local Project in Long Island City.
