Artist in Residence

Celebrated Vancouver-based media artist Judy Radul will be developing the technical aspects of a major new video production project World Rehearsal Court (working title). The project is based on ongoing research into the performative and media aspects of the contemporary court of law. Radul’s time at the Western Front will be spent developing new servo-controlled, programmable, repeatable camera movements for the series of live cameras that will be used in the installation. Specific trajectories will be designed for the cameras with the objective of providing viewers with an alternate perspective on the built environment in the gallery. This environment will refer to the theatre of the court, law, judgment, evidence, reiteration, and testimony. The completed work will be first shown at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery in the fall of 2009.
