Main Street Beacon
Storefront windows are first covered with a photograph of the reflection, including the photographer's gaze. As the colored prints fall off, the gap is filled in with a contour drawing of the reflection. When the contour drawing falls off, then the reflective glass shows through. The installation is a collage of light, photography, and drawing. The project was curated by Windows on Main Street, a public art exhbition in Beacon, New York.
A Technical Statement
In the series of time-based drawings of architecture, Brummund first makes a picture of the building either by drawing, digital collage, or photography. She then digitally enlarges the image to the same scale as the facade. Next, Brummund prints the drawing on sheets of letter-sized office paper. The sheets are hung methodically on the facade, and eventually the entire image is visible. The sheets blow in the wind, curl from moisture, and fall off. Over time the real building and the representation of the building deconstruct, and we are compelled to piece together a new picture of the building. Photographs and videos document the ephemeral installation.
