I stumbled upon the multi-video installation, “Scenes From the House Dream” by David Hoffos during TIFF week while trying to kill time before Todor Kobakov‘s lovely piano performance at the 107 Shaw gallery.
I have to say, it was one of the most inspiring exhibition show I’ve witness (though I haven’t witnessed too many). The ingenious use of mirrors to project moving images from tube tv’s, to the beautiful craftsmanship of the miniature models, to the David Lynch inspired atmosphere, all combined, left me in awe. It is definitely a piece that needs to be experienced in person. Each “scene” was captivating, sometimes had narratives, but was simply so well executed that you immediately immerse into these little worlds he’s created for you to observe.
