"Makin' It!" was a site-specific interactive video installation commissioned by curator Lauren Van Haaften-Schick for MATINEE!, a group video art show in the remains of St Cecilia's Convent in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
A projection of a wall in St. Cecilia's was projected back onto itself at full size. A prayer table was in the middle of the room and when visitors would light a candle on the table it would trigger the projection to switch over into a series of young celebrities talking about their hopes for fame, fortune, and making it in the industry. The projection would return to the wall as soon as the candle was blown out. The interactive patch was written by Nick Lally who collaborated on the project.
