Over the past 4 weeks, Kristin Cammermeyer has transformed 1708 Gallery into a set for a generative, site-specific stop motion video for her exhibition In Constant Circulation. Her open process welcomes viewer interaction and engenders a spirit of transparency. The temporal and transient nature of her installation is captured and edited through the lens of the camera—where the camera becomes both a frame for the original installation and an apparatus for the production of a new video work. 

Cammermeyer’s work investigates the human impact on natural and fabricated ecologies through re-purposing and rehabilitating obsolete consumer goods. This iterative project extends and redefines the function of each accumulated object in a visual manner that is alternative and optimistic. Cammermeyer’s work is informed by the parameters of site, duration, material availability, and audience interaction.

In Constant Circulation is made possible by Diversity Richmond and Iridian Gallery.
