Specifications for Project 17

Project 17 : Bill Viola


Project Overview
For Project 17, two works from Bill Viola’s 2005 series The Tristan Project were presented nightly at St Saviour’s Church in Redfern, Sydney. The darkened church was lit with a larger-than-life projection of Fire Woman and Tristan’s Ascension (The Sound of a Mountain Under a Waterfall), mesmerising images of catharsis and ascension accompanied by resonating sound.
