Chartres Bleu, 1983–1986

In this life-size video rendition of a Gothic stained-glass
window in Chartres Cathedral, the passage of light over
the period of one day is condensed to twelve minutes.
Here Kos adapts late-20th-century technology to the
medieval storytelling art of stained glass. On view here
is an exhibition copy of the work that is permanently
installed, in a chapel-like setting, at the di Rosa Preserve
in Napa, California.
