An emotionally moving projection work based on the Dylan Thomas poem Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.
Erin McCuskey and Christine Tammer’s audiovisual projection tells a story of the passing of time. McCuskey’s high-contrast imagery combines with Tammer’s ghostly soundtrack to movingly evoke the concepts of dark, night and age, of light passing, of wisdom gained.
The image and sound work together to develop a pulse and stamina, meditatively encouraging viewers to consider their own time, their own elders and the time they have left together.
