Hand-held flashlights are tools for sight and lucidity in otherwise unlit spaces. Strange Light is a continuous video installation that explores the contemplative yet uncertain act of searching in the dark. A single small light passes over objects and surfaces across multiple settings, glimpsing only a few ambiguous details of a larger unseen space- one that is uncannily impossible. The light invites viewers to enter the dark join the search, considering the question of what and of where.

About the artist:

Jordan Schinkel is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in Calgary. In 2017, he graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design, where he received a BFA in the Drawing department. Jordan’s studio work fluctuates between drawing and installation-based video, and is prompted by an interest in processes of reordering and reconstructing fragmented moments and images.
