American Falls (2010)
Phil Solomon / USA
American Falls is an immersive triptych film installation that can transform the gallery into a panoramic and artistic journey through the catacylsms of American history, and an elegy to the film medium that welcomes a new era of mixed media. Combining chemically degraded film images with computer editing precision, Solomon’s piece recasts the Niagara Falls as both a metaphoric landscape and audio-visual backdrop to American history.
