[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Hugh Watt — As Daylight Falls

Artist Statement

A camera slowly rotates, recording images of Belfast. The film projected from the freight container’s interior onto a screen, transforms it into a giant light-box. As the natural light diminishes, the projected work will emerge emitting an image of the city as if seen through a magnifying glass, focusing attention on architectural detail, juxtaposing the historic against the new.
