Jury feedback summary
Slow Sails is a veritable monument to earth and sky, a series of outdoor open-air corridors formed by fiberglass ‘sails’ to frame views of the landscape and sky above. The effervescent, reflective finishes of the sails are designed to change with variations in daylight, weather and season. Amidst the striated corridors created by these vertical walls are hidden ‘solid’ screening rooms and other enclosed spaces built of insulated wood stud and sod brick. Slow Field provokes users to engage with film via varied cinematic experiences that are both indoor and open air, using reverse and standard projections onto walls within the intimacy of enclosed rooms as well as on the surfaces of the exterior sails, thereby merging the cinematic experience with the natural landscape and site.
