    Exhibition: Float 03

    Floating Cinema, 2003

    Floating video screening device, color video, sound

    Floating Cinema exists as a transformational gesture inhabiting one of the most emotionally loaded of all public spaces: the water's edge at night. Driven by the impulse to enter the viewer's perceptual field completely without warning, Rubin projects image (video) and sound, while carefully controlling the motion of the floating screen via a radio-control transmitter from shore. Both the silent, electric motors that propel the cinema-craft, and the audio-visual equipment that produces the moving imagery are driven from deep-cycle batteries that are ecologically clean, so it glides across the water, as quietly as a swan.
