Jeff Cain
Skyglow (2008/2018) Video Installation

Skyglow takes its viewers on a helicopter journey across the City of Angels from Santa Monica’s iconic pier to downtown Los Angeles and back again. The sound and sight of police helicopters whirling above LA at night is a common occurrence: a gesture of surveillance and a warning that crime is close by. But the urban city here is serene seen from a far distance, the landscape aglow with lights. The ceiling installation is inspired by an inverse observatory experience – look up to the sky to see the city below. For this iteration Skyglow is updated as a triptych with three high resolution projections.

Presented by curator Melissa Pellico
Supported in part by USC Roski School of Art and Design
