Description
As a visitor descends the stairway into the Screen Gallery, her path will leave a trace through which imagery will emerge from the past -- people ascending from a train platform in Australia one hundred years ago. The artwork is a live interplay between the present and the past. As ACMI visitors descend the stairs to encounter the future of screen arts, they pass through the lingering and ever-present influence of cinematic history. A wondrous, benign space of haunting, the staircase initiates Screen Gallery visitors into the ever-present power of cinematic history.
