Ocean Without a Shore, a new work by Bill Viola

About

Bill Viola’s latest video installation, Ocean Without a Shore, is presented in the atmospheric setting of the church of San Gallo, Venice.  Monitors positioned on three stone altars in the church show a succession of individuals slowly approaching out of darkness and moving into the light, as if encountered at the intersection between death and life. Viola talks about his artistic intentions and the technical challenges of the piece.
