Dialogue with a foghorn

2002

Bay Area Now 3, YBCA

Video-sound installation

The sound of foghorns is audible; a bicycle is stuck in the crack of a jumping ramp projecting a video loop of a bicycle carrying a front light riding close to the edge of a building roof at dusk. When the viewer walks around the piece he or she hears and finds another video loop in the TV monitor that makes audible the sound of the foghorn. This video loop features the artist pointing a flashlight to the ground and his feet then pointing the flashlight toward the camera. Dulzaides answers the foghorn with a pitch pipe. A slide projector on top of a skateboard features images of street cracks. The bicycle and the skateboard are the two media of transportation where the body function as the motor that generates movement.
