Janus (2), 2011, two-channel HD video animation (no audio) from Barry Anderson on Vimeo.

Barry Anderson's enigmatic and captivating video installations are constructed worlds of rumination that deftly but subtley counter the cult of speed that frequently plagues our society. Experiencing his works, we must slow down, engage, and, ultimately, reflect upon that which is overlooked -- a process of discovery that is all too often absent or underemphasized in much of contemporary art today. --Elizabeth Dunbar, Curator, Arthouse Texas
