Since the 1980s, Canadian artist Stan Douglas has consistently interrogated the properties of film and video and has made viewers aware of how they could be transformed and redeployed inside the black box as the real place. In so doing, he has intended to lay bare relations of his projected images, their apparatus, and the imaginary places they represent. This chapter examines Douglas’s challenging moving image installations—a body of work that has taken an inscription of specific places as a primary element of its practice. It studies several of his key, seriously emplaced works, asking how Douglas moves the most exacting strains of moving image installation practice of the 1970s into new aesthetic and political territory. Moreover, the chapter considers the centrality of media and mediation to site-specific artistic practices.
