The Festival

Bring to Light is a free nighttime public festival of art in New York City that takes place simultaneously with “nuit blanche” events in cities around the world. Inviting emerging and established artists to make site-specific installations of light, sound, performance and projection art, the event creates an immersive spectacle for thousands of visitors to re-imagine public space and civic life. Bring to Light will transform streets, parks and the industrial waterfront of Greenpoint, Brooklyn set against dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline.

Jeff Desom

In this large-scale projection, Jeff Desom has combined dozens of images culled from Hitchcock’s suspense film Rear Window (1954). Projected onto a factory facade, the pastiched scenes provide a totalizing image of the activities witnessed by the film’s main character, L.B “Jeff” Jeffries (Jimmy Stewart), as he spies on building tenants from across the street. The resultant view of the film’s footage presents a panorama of the various characters, going about their business, even as murder takes place in the midst of their routines.
