Boy in the Woods
For swaths of time, the projection is empty, silent, and still. Viewers patient enough to watch, or whose curiosity is somehow piqued, will be presented not only with visual stimuli, but a void on which to project their own thoughts. Where is this boy? Why is he hiding? Where did he come from? Is he hungry?
Designed as a public projection for a storefront in Chicago’s Loop, Boy in the Woods is an intriguing contrast to the constant bustle of the urban center. It will be on view from March 25 to April 01, at Randolph and State, across the street from the Oriental Theater.
