Vestibule a site specific video installation that focuses on the journey between Ushuaia and the Antarctic Peninsula, one of the roughest bodies of water in the world: the Drake Passage. The installation included a large-scale live projection of footage from a CCTV camera mounted above the bow of the ship filming the horizon and view from the front of the ship continuously. This video could be watched while sitting on one of four custom motion-stabilized chairs. Hanging free of the ship's roll and pitch the chairs appeared to move within a still room when in fact they were still and the room in constant motion. The four chairs and the horizon appeared to move in synchrony. Projected into the room the horizon seemed to pitch right and left, sink and rise, while in fact it was the ship that tilted and rolled. This effect is best seen in this short piece of video documentation here.
