THE DARKNESS IN-BETWEEN synchronizes LED strobe lights with a video camera system such that the video frames are only exposed while the lights are off. Because the LEDs flash fast enough to appear constant, viewers enter the installation space feeling flooded with bright, white light while monitors installed in the space present live video footage of the dark space between flashes.

Two spaces, one lit, one unlit, and two bodies, one in the light and one in the dark, occupy the same space at the same time.
