Medium:


    Video

Artist Statement:


    The frozen electronic image has a temporal, tactile quality that is peculiar to the medium, and unattainable by any other means. In this work, movement of the video camera around and through buildings allows the “collaging” into one frame of multiple points of view. The viewer has the unusual opportunity of examining the stills, while hearing and seeing the highly kinetic videotape from which the stills were captured. This work adds a new facet to both mediums, creating a form of conceptual architecture.
