Lighthouse, 2013

Light House (2013) is a video made by Dominique Blais during a residency at Nida Art Colony in Lithuania. The subject is a lighthouse which was close to the studio of the artist. In this looped movie, the vertical architecture becomes a decontextualized and dematerialized object by the saturated red color of the image. As the regular rate of the lamp light beam works as a perpetual sand timer, it takes an hypnotic dimension.
