Royal NoneSuch Gallery presents Windows: a site-specific installation by Bay Area artist Chris Fraser. Fraser constructs environments modeled on historical image-making technologies, from the camera obscura to the magic lantern. In turn, he uses these antiquated apparatuses to project ephemeral images of the surroundings.
Chris Fraser has created a site-specific installation at Royal Nonesuch Gallery that plays with historically complex, essentially simple image-making technologies to produce compelling visual effects from natural light. Here, a subtly manipulated bank of windows yields unexpected results day to day. A special participatory event led by the artist takes place Mar. 16; see site for details.
