“The Endless Bridge”
by Leo Kuelbs
Usually transition is considered a binder, connecting seemingly complete, separate parts, like a bridge in a song. But when the change, the bridge, is actually longer and more intense than the pieces it is seeks to connect, doesn’t the transition, with all its chaos and upheaval, become the actual rule as opposed to the exception? “The Endless Bridge” is a series of video-based installations exploring the notion of transition, not only as a means of connection, but as a place itself.
Work from a selected group of international-level video artists projected (or back-projected) on multiple sites in Dumbo, creates a consistent atmosphere of gentle, consistent transition. This idea reflects not only the increasing speed of technological momentum, but also the neighborhood itself as an example of transition and growth as a constant instead of an exception.”
