Top: Blaine Campbell & Megan Wilson, Chase, 2011, digital projection. Chase is a site-specific installation, a lavish rendering of the ornate thousand-pound Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier within Vancouver‘s Orpheum Theatre. The chandelier‘s lights slowly progress through an endless on-off cycle, a glowing apparition with a multitude of crystal facets catching and refracting light in ever-changing patterns.
