Abstract colour films for 2 or 3 adjacent projectors. Liminal Minimal is a performance for mobile projectors using red, green and blue colour signals. #5 and Hand Grenade are both 3-screen action paintings produced by trails of light. In Dream Displacement, Sharits manipulates strips of single-frame colour fields, creating a soporific, cinematic meditation.
