Jack Goldstein 1945-2003
In The Chair
(1975) the glaring white highlights on a freshly painted black chair rhyme with multicoloured feathers that fall and stick to the paint, caught by both paint and camera, while the chair itself nearly disappears into the deep blue background.
One take, a little over 7 minutes in length is a black wooden chair slowly being rained upon by large multi-colored feathers. There is no sound. The piece is Zen like and meditative transporting the viewer into contentment as feathers gather on and around the chair.
