About The Space of Difference:
The Space of Difference is a video-art installation projecting at the Surrey Urban Screen (Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre) that brings together past and present biological and geological imagery representing the rich history and diverse present of the site. These two spheres of imagery make up the video matrix for the artwork, which responds to the movement of the SkyTrain that passes nearby, creating pairings of images in vertical strips. Much like a digital version of rollage art or rotating billboards in the process of changing, these two images are seen at once, presenting an opportunity for viewers to create their own meanings, speculations, and interpretations of place. Visible from Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre and on the SkyTrain passing over the site, The Space of Difference is projected nightly from sunset to midnight, exhibiting now until January 4, 2015.
About the artists:
Operative Agency (OA) is Bryan Lemos Beca and Steve DiPasquale. With a critical disposition towards art and design, OA seeks to enhance public engagement with the built environment, excavating and teasing out new opportunities for play, interaction, and civic engagement. Central to this goal is the understanding that the politics of the public realm are an embodied, lived experience, with critical design freeing the latent potential of the urban commons.
