Geof Oppenheimer
Anthems

Designed as an installation timed spent is determined by the viewer, as with classical sculpture, Anthems is a piece that is in place, and in time, and an important genre of video within the collection. It is the overlapping of the beautiful with the impact of military ritual and pomp. The use of the sculptural props and again sound (the ideal presentation of this work is with surround sound) create a composition as visual as it is aural.

A San Francisco artist, Oppenheimer work in different mediums and materials, including the choice of video within his practice, with its emphasis as a great tool for creating conceptual sculpture, also his attention to sound as a very important architectonic device.
