Horizon at the Frye

Why: Along one long wall, a smattering of various-sized gilt-framed landscapes from the Frye’s collection are hung to form a single, contiguous horizon line. What you notice are the bare tools available in shaping a view: scale, geometry, shade, color. On the facing wall is a giant projection of a 2003 video, Morning After the Deluge, by Paul Pfeiffer. A sunrise and sunset come together in the center of an unhinged sky, unhinged because Pfeiffer adjusted the view frame by frame to create the alignment, shifting the seen universe for the sake of sheer perplexing pleasure.
