Sequence 21.1,(2012 – 2019) is a 1 minute 20 second color video. The video is comprised of short clips of events recorded in the artist's apartment with household materials. Color and light, figure and ground, and contraction and expansion are some of the formal themes in the work. Points of light and shadow of various sizes in color fields along the visible spectrum are presented as a progression over time. The segments of a lens pointing directly into a beam of light mirror the video projector's beam onto the gallery space wall. Brian Fridge's first video work was made with a camcorder in 1994. Working with readily available materials and indoor lighting, his lens-based videos are derived from events grounded in a human scale. Fridge is interested in the medium of video and the most basic subjects of light, matter, space, and time. The resulting works invite a wide range of associations.
