Bowery RAW  [excerpt]

2019

Two-channel video installation with sound

13:17 minutes

Bowery Raw is a two-channel video installation that composes a photographic portrait of the evolving Lighting District. The photos are made audible by translating the underlying RAW image files into sound, and in doing so calling our attention to the untold and invisible story of light.

In contrast to Tichy’s photographic works, which examine collection of light, and video projections, which are based on reproduction of light, the new neon sculptures can be understood as the artistic means by which he creates and shapes physical light with his own hands and breath.
