Finding Beauty in Ballistics: TRACER FIRE, New Video Installation by Joel Newman,

About

Inspired by the phosphorescent trail of tracer bullets in the night sky Tracer Fire explores the juxtaposition between the beauty and violence of ballistic weapons - their mesmerizing, burning trail belying their destructiveness upon impact, and the highly-wrought nature of their machinery at odds with the havoc they wreak. An installation piece projected simultaneously onto the surfaces of a darkened room, the experience is one of being caught in a crossfire or at a fireworks display. The immersive work also exploits the concept of persistence of vision, as our eyes fill up with afterimages, adding another dimension to the piece.
