WARMING HUT

Using the ebb and flow of sunlight, nocturnal shadows, and oscillating perspectives through a series of viewing apertures, CINEMA WITHOUT FILM encourages active interaction to produce a series of cinema effects.

INTERSECT
       
     
INTERSECT

The installation was positioned at the intersection of the two frozen rivers in Winnipeg.

ASSEMBLY
       
     
ASSEMBLY

Shop fabricated wall panels are shipped to site on a sled. They are then tilted up and tied to the ice with a bolted connection to a baseplate. A top plate system subsequently ties the entire system together.

NICHE
       
     
NICHE

The building plan creates a series of individual rooms that provide shelter and relate to one another through linear views between them.

SCREEN AND PROJECTOR
       
     
SCREEN AND PROJECTOR

This three dimensional line acts as an apparatus for capturing incidental refraction of light and shadow on the frozen river. The coloured apertures stand in for the projector, piercing through the panels and growing or diminishing in size from their origin.

PORTHOLE
       
     
PORTHOLE

Framed views are colour keyed to indicate their continuity through the structure and provide framed, animated views.

PLAY
       
     
PLAY

Situating the warming hut within the broader cityscape beyond, spectators can playfully reframe space in this cinema without film.
