The Public Art class in the Interactive Arts and Media Department at Columbia College Chicago created POV, a selection of new motion-sensitive video works made for HPAC’s projection facade. The 7 works featured are connected loosely by the theme of the individual against a backdrop of societal constraints. All of the works were completed under the instruction of Annette Barbier in May 2010 and run in a loop in the order given below with each piece displaying for 10 minutes. The title of the show POV, stands for Point of View, referencing the shifting perspective the viewer gets of the facade as they pass by the HPAC building. Each work was made with two sequences – one plays idly and the second gets triggered by the viewer’s motion passing on the sidewalk or the street in front of the Art Center.
The facade runs from 8 pm – 10 pm daily with exception to Friday, May 7 (the program will not play at all that day due to the HPAC gala).
