Yann Novak is back in Seattle this week installing new work at Jack Straw New Media Gallery. Blue.Hour will be a sound and video installation which, "...explores the high contrast colors created in the landscape during "l'heure bleue," the period of twilight each evening when there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. Directly preceding the 'Golden Hour,' known for its diffused yet powerful light, the Blue Hour retains the diffusion but lacks the strong light source, giving this period of the day an especially melancholic and meditative atmosphere." This piece is based on sound and images gathered from Joshua Tree National Park.

The opening is this Friday (Feb 10) from 7-9pm. Yann will also be back for an artist talk on March 9, plus a live performance at Chapel Performance Space on March 10.
