13.7 min. @ 56k or 6 min. @ 128k


This 1 minute 3.48 megabyte QuickTime silent movie is 150 pixels high by 200 pixels wide. It is a compilation of various shots, showing diverse views and angles of the sculpture. For the Times Square installation, we had the work professionally lit by two of Broadway's top lighting technicians Chris Skeens and Jason Brandt. This movie shows the theatrics of the light and attempts to show you more of the work than seen in the above two movies #1 & #2. The CrossPathCulture Gallery is not only located at Times Square but is on the same block with Radio City Music Hall: which with the exhibition being over the Christmas period, drew thousands of viewers off the streets into see the show. To view this movie please click on the above image.
This 5.61 megabyte QuickTime silent movie is 240 pixels high by 320 pixels wide. It is a larger pixel format of the same movie to the left. For the exhibition at Times Square Gerard decided to make the work not only more theatrical but also dangerous. This was achieved by changing changing the plinth which the sculpture was placed on from the more formal stand seen in the above two movies to s series of rough thick and large timbers. This Times Square presentation not only showed the work in a kinetic state but with the special lighting (described in the table to the left) it clearly presented Gerard's intent with this work. To view the movie please click on the above image.

This movie was recorded at the "CrossPathCulture Center" at Times Square, New York, where the work was featured as part of the "All Access" exhibition, December 2001 - January 2002.

Gerard Pas © 2001- Flash Animation
Prior to actually creating the sculpture "Portrait of Chuck Close" Gerard created this very small Flash concept animation to illustrate an example of what the work might look like completed.
This animation is a very small 48 kb and takes just seconds to load. The animation does have sound, which can be turned off by simply clicking on the sound off / sound on button inside the animation. To watch it now click on either of the above two images.
