"For 30 minutes a beam of light from a 16mm film projector draws a perfect circle on a distant screen. In the space between a solid cone takes shape as light particles cling to dust and smoke in the atmosphere. Transforming the viewers usual passive relation to the medium, this work invites active Matt Flynn Jersey Ebay participation."
