THE GHOST IN THE ROOM

some images made during my residency time in noyers-sur-serein, france last summer, the medieval village where duran duran's new moon on monday was filmed.

i was charmed by this village, and one barn in particular that was still filled with hay from centuries ago. the only available light streamed in from a window in the ceiling, illuminating the stone wall and highlighting the incredible character of the handmade structure. having worked on a handmade house myself, i had such respect for all of the people who worked to create this beautiful space, and all of the people who had used it over the years. so much productivity, so much action. i paid homage to the ghosts in the barn by working with two new friends i met in the village to create mysteriously active human forms. the work was shot in one barn and shown in another via projection, so the stone wall-backed imagery glowed on top of the dark stone wall in the exhibition space.
