Selected Works

Barron Sherer: EKTA-GLADES

Barron Sherer, EKTA-GLADES, 2020. 16mm film transferred to HD video, color, sound, 7:56 min.

This moving image installation is a record of sound and images on 16mm motion picture film and digital audio captured during an AIRIE mini-residency. The video explores actuality (the Everglades in Winter) but also the relationship of the image to the frame and the image to the work’s diegetic soundtrack. The work’s temporal and structural dimension also notes human intrusion in a meditative and complex ecosystem. Ultimately, there are several modalities of experience: the work is material, referential, and scenic. It explores an archeo-exotic locale and our own contemporary backyard.

Edition of 5 and 1 A/P.

Locations include Coastal Prarie Hiking Trail, Christian Point, Mahogany Hammock, Gumbo Trail, and Lone Key Pine Trail.

Produced during a pilot program by Artists in Residence in Everglades, AIRIE, called Mini Residency 2019 in the Florida Everglades. Sherer shot the film during December 2019 and January 2020 and completed digital finishing at Oolite Arts takeover at Anderson Ranch Art Center during February and March 2020 after some remote lab work and scanning Thank you Cinelab, Boston, and the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives.
