“Timescapes” is New at WetHeat.TV


Frame grab: Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo working on a mosaic segment of “Timescapes”

During a hot summer week in 2012, Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo and Jeffrey Noble completed a months-long collaboration in the beachside spa tower stairwell at Sagamore, the Art Hotel. Our new short film Timescapes, commissioned by New World School of the Arts where the two artists are graduating BFA seniors, captures the high-powered final week of production, a race to finish the top flights and ceiling.

Commissioned by the Cricket Taplin Collection, Timescapes is a glass-and-paint artwork spanning the full five-floor height of an exposed stairwell in the hotel property’s oceanside tower.

(This film premiered during Art Basel Miami Beach 2012 on the Sagamore’s in-house edition of WetHeat.TV available to all guest rooms and suites on Channel 55.)
