Conceived as an alternative means of exploring architectural space, Chapel was a video and sound installation depicting the Calera Chapel in Toyahvale, Texas over the course of a single day. The installation consisted of five screens displaying looped films of the chapel’s adobe façade - offset so that each played the image of the church two hours apart - and a soundtrack of ambient audio recorded at the chapel.
