The Proposition is pleased to present Noah Klersfeld with his two-piece video installation Over a Couple of Seconds, an installation that employs a number of different video and projection techniques playing with the ideas of “Lost and Found”.
Working in two small rooms, Klersfeld pushes the limitations of scale, time and volume with a small floating two-sided projection of a hovering helicopter (Over) in the first room, in contrast to an oversized wall projection of two people in the second (A Couple of Seconds). The vacancy of the first room is colorful and wondrous and is accompanied by a slow almost unattainable image.
In the second room, the image is surprisingly large forcing a direct interaction between the viewer and one of the two projected figures that appears as if he has been waiting for you to complete the piece. The way this video image is split and composed over time suggests both the timelessness of waiting and the curiosity of finding something new.
Noah Klersfeld was a recent participant at The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received his Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has recently screened and installed work at the COURTisane Film and Video Festival in Ghent Belgium, SuperSalon at Samson Projects in Boston, The One Minute Film and Video Festival in Toronto Canada, the HiLo Film and Video Festival in San Francisco and The Video Marathon at Art in General in New York City. He lives and works in New York City.
