Of Time and Light
Suha Shoman

March – May 2004

"...an ingenious technical accomplishment involving sound and video in a three room installation of seven different video loops, projected simultaneously on nine walls; not counting the outside entrance video loop of a Petra pink/yellow façade. Each room captures the essence of a different phase of human life: milestones from pre-birth to the mortality of loved ones and promise of resurrection. Of Time and Light evokes Viola-esque cycles representing the progress of a soul. However, Shoman eschews the use of actors or special effects to exploit the basic medium of video to the fullest: time, delving visually into the essence of these abstract and timeless questions."
