studio 903. The Veiling, 1995 by Bill Viola Images of a man and a woman moving through a series of nocturnal landscapes are projected into parallel layers of loosely suspended translucent cloth. They each appear on separate opposing video channels, and are seen gradually moving from dark areas of shadow into areas of bright light. they penetrate further into the scrim layers, eventually intersecting each other on the central veil.
Created by mixed media artist Anila Quayyum Agha, this elaborately carved cube with an embedded light source projects a dazzling pattern of shadows onto the surrounding gallery walls. Titled Intersections, the installation is made from large panels of laser-cut wood meant to emulate the geometrical patters found in Islamic sacred spaces.
