Quest For Beauty: John Yeon

This video installation, shown during the Portland Art Museum's "Quest For Beauty: John Yeon" exhibition, records the changing seasons at The Shire, a 78-acre work of landscape design by John Yeon in the Columbia River Gorge. Sitting directly across the river from Multnomah Falls, it employs the theory of 'captured views,' incorporating the Falls and basalt cliffs into the design of the pastoral, semi-wild space. The task, as requested by curator Randy Gragg, was to "evoke a slowly evolving painting," which required an approach that differed substantially from traditional time-lapse video. To compress time while avoiding the usual frantic nature of time compression, each video frame consists of between four and twelve images overlain atop of each other at varying opacity values.
