Ann Hamilton: Draw

January 18, 2015 — September 27, 2015

In this video presented from four spinning projectors, Ann Hamilton (OH) follows a red thread traveling over and under a piece of semitransparent, white paper.

Shot from above with a handheld, miniature, single-chip surveillance camera, the video follows the thread’s tail as the pace of the hand pulling the thread and the speed of the eye following it, fall in and out of sync and focus. The sound of the thread drawn through the paper comprises the sole element of the audio track.

Through this hybridization of fine art, craft, and technology, Hamilton both elevates and illuminates a fundamental act of making.
