peter campus (American, b. New York, New York 1937) is a seminal artist in the canons of new media and video art. In a solitary pursuit over the past year, campus positioned his camera around the shores of Shinnecock Bay, not far from his home in Patchogue, NY. The resulting six works, all to be shown in the exhibition, invite the viewer to meditate on the sublime beauty of the natural landscape, while noting the gap between what we perceive, what the camera records, and what the artist brings to the fore in the video.
