Artist Statement:

    Original work of art: One Hundred Horses by Giuseppe Castiglione

    Chinese panoramic scroll paintings were originally designed to be laid on a table and rolled from one end to the other. As a consequence the scroll’s iconographic narrative would gradually reveal itself as it passed beneath the viewer’s gaze. To reconstitute this manner of reading the over seven-meter long “One Hundred Horses” scroll, this interactive installation lets the viewer with handles with which to unroll a full size digital facsimile of the painting across a video screen mounted in a table.
