Painting Constellated Space (3 days, 1533 minutes)

1:00 minute
photographic animation by Audrey Love

A time lapse photography animation (provided by Audrey Love) of volunteers painting the north wall of the Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery, at the University of Nevada, Reno, preparing "Constellated Space". Shot every minute, collaborators worked over the course of three days, this is only a small sample of the full piece, which spanned the 5 walls of the Sheppard, the 3 walls of the adjacent Walter McNamara Gallery, and 4 walls in the Front Door Gallery. Painting took place the two weeks prior to the exhibition (March 7 - 11, 2011), and employed the help of nearly 80 volunteers - each responsible for determining a small portion of the final "look" of the piece. Collaborators were asked to pay attention to the white walls of the gallery and circle any irregularities, such as still-visible repairs from previous exhibitions, in a nearly-black, midnight blue-green color ("Deep Space" commercially available through Behr) - creating a loose map of the gallery's history, as it is still visible in its otherwise smooth surface.
