Revolution: Bowl of Fruit

The world’s first 24-hour streaming video is now on view at the Crocker. Ben Whitehouse’s video installation Revolution: Bowl of Fruit is from his series of video artworks Revolutions, which capture continuous 24-hour periods in a seamless record of a single revolution of the planet. Whitehouse’s tabletop still lifes are traditionally arranged, clearly deriving their compositions from 19th-century conventions.
This piece was shot from the window of a Chicago boathouse overlooking Lake Michigan. The composition is a re-working of the Impressionist strategy of placing fruits near a window to examine light effects. Here the composition evolves in response to the changing light conditions of the daylight and street light cycle they were exposed to on August 5, 2006. Moment-to-moment interplays of light and object range from the subtle to the dramatic. This piece connects art-historical tradition with new media.
