Vanishing Act
Green Screen Chroma Green paint Gallery’s office space and supplies
Dimensions variable

In Vanishing Act, the office space has been almost entirely painted with “green screen” paint, including the desk and the objects that have accumulated with time, sediments as the artist calls them. By painting them in the green chroma key colour, the work refers to the technology of digitally removing or “keying out” that colour, at which point that scene can be dropped onto any digital background. In other words, the artist playfully suggests making the whole space digitally or virtually disappear. This imaginary disappearance is an ode to the the fragility and transience of the material world, as well the ultimate way for creating a neutral space.
