Quasha, George and Charles Stein. Tall Ships: Gary Hill’s Projective Installations—Number 2. Barrytown, NY: Station Hill Arts, 1997.

You enter a long, dark corridor. Indistinct luminous shapes seem to move in place on the walls. Then a human figure rises, walks towards you, stands and gazes at you, becomes almost intimate with you before turning back whence it came. In Tall Ships, an award-winning interactive installation created by video projection, Seattle-based artist and world-renowned pioneer of video art Gary Hill presents an underworld-like journey from which each visitor returns to daylight somehow transformed. In an ongoing series of the Quasha & Stein dialogue with Gary Hill, this highly readable text leads you on an initiatory journey, beautifully illustrated in duotone to give a living sense of the actual installation.
