Linnéa Gad 
(with Will Epstein)
A Light Kept Promise
Super 8 film projected on silk, metal sculpted backdrop stand, live score

A moving image portrait in vignettes of the interior and exterior space off a corner studio in Columbia University Prentis Hall building. The footage, shot on super 8 film, captures the soon to be disappeared light as a tall building is about to be erected on the neighboring lot. Projected on silk and held up by a sculpted metal backdrop stand, the film is accompanied by a live soundtrack performed by composer Will Epstein.
