Contemporary Istanbul - Plugin
1646’s submission to Plugin, the New Media section of Contemporary Istanbul 2013, is Dan Walwin’s video piece Shallows .
This video by Walwin, resident artist at the Rijksacademie in 2012-13 and past resident at 1646, consists of a camera moving above a flat landscape, made up of a variety materials both assembled and constructed.
The camera moves noiselessly, illuminating its route in front of itself, and agitates the materials by the presence of a silent wind. The scene includes a number of people who are apparently immobilised and experiencing an imbalance in the air supply.
