The Pool of Enchantment
de Young Museum, SF 2000
Collaboration with Harrell Fletcher
Curated by Glen Helfand
We were invited to create a project that dealt with the De Young museum and its collection. The museum was about to be demolished and replaced with a new structure. We decided to focus our attentions on the man-made turtle pond in the front of the museum. The pond was not to be part of the new museum's grounds. The installation was comprised of three large-scale video projections of footage shot underwater. It presents a Jacques Cousteau-like adventure of a world soon to be obsolete.
