Off-the-wall video on view through May 30

New York-based sculptor and video artist Chris Doyle appears in a Superman pose in his Brooklyn studio in 'Flight,' one of several Doyle videos now on view at the Media Test Wall in Building 56. The finished work retains a jerky motion, which is a clue to Doyle's methodology: The artist performed 230 individual leaps and then sequenced still photographs to depict flight. Through Tuesday, May 30.

'Extraordinary Perceptual Dilemmas and the Madness of Climbing' (2003), one of several recent videos by New York-based sculptor and video artist Chris Doyle, is on view at the Media Test Wall in Building 56 through Tuesday, May 30. The work was created for an exhibition in East Hampton, N.Y., a popular resort town whose longtime residents often describe the area's past in idyllic terms. Doyle uses an old-movie feel and a profusion of images to conjure the dark side of paradise.
