Brothy City (v.2.0) is an example of Stasseo (stained-glass-video), a technique Greber developed utilizing multiple projections, painting and 3D elements to realize large, installed-video compositions. The imagery in this installation draws from B-movie poster art, pinball machines and other popular graphic aesthetics including product references and advertising. The expectation is that the viewer will form personal connections between the perceived genre/product/advert and past encounters or experiences. Eventually however, one is forced to question these associations and find meaning at face value, as Greber explains, “revealing a soft narrative emanating from the darkness: A person with a melting face is seduced by a melting city.”
1-2 channel Stasseo installation (video projection, acrylic paint, rhinestones) installed on canvas or on wall, as a mural.
In this installation, Greber brings to life a panoramic view of b-movie horror based on the story of an outcast who unwittingly unleashes something mysterious and terrible on his new home, Brothy City. The installation can be read as a comment on personal or civic status and the traps of fame; however, it is also open and abstract enough for viewers to bring their own demons to the table.
