Durness: Beverly Carpenter  

Beverly is interested in the architectural forms that surround us, and the individuals who live and work in them. Our perception of what is real and what is meaningful is constantly altered by the circumstances we find ourselves in. The consumer culture within which we live thrives on selling us a constant stream of fantasies. Through use of the moving image with objects and buildings, she seeks to challenge these illusions and temporarily transform her environment.

Here's some recent projects.
