Aspect Ratio, a one-night-only video exhibition at The Factory in St Louis, premiered new works from 5 emerging St Louis video artists: Trevor Fields, Patrick Hunt, Nathan Janeczek, Larry Robinson and Camillo Spiegelfeld. The exhibition was strong, and two works in particular were a delight:

In Larry Robinson and Camillo Spiegelfeld’s Untitled (2007), two videos simultaneously pan over a group of actors. With ambitious engineering panache and witty choreography, both video monitors move along a track in sync with the pan in the video.

Equally successful is Trevor Fields’ work in which a broken TV is placed on a stage like a Buddha statue. It only has the capacity to show a single horizontal row of bright pulsating light. Very Nam June Paik, yet defiantly contemporary.
