Some of Ann Veronica Janssens‘ work is clearly and singularly about color. For a number of her installations, Janssens’ uses a color film that transforms the light shining through it. She then fills the space with an artificial fog which seems to glow with color. The fog acts as a vehicle to carry the light and spread it into the air of the space; a way to experience color and only color. There is no depth, texture, or line but just color and its saturation. The installations create a dreamy atmosphere when any medium between color and the eye seems to disappear.
Photographer Simon Christen calls Adrift, his two year in the making video, “a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area.” The often daily fog is just one feature that makes the San Francisco peculiarly wonderful. Christen worked through out the two year period to catch the images fog a few seconds at a time. An ocean of fog appears to flow like water down hills, through and under the Golden Gate Bridge, and into the city. Set to a custom score by Jimmy LaValle of The Album Leaf, Adrift underscores the beautiful mystery of unique area.
