Continuous Condition: Softly Distending Passage

2008, 7:07


One of three videos that make up the installation Continuous Condition, this piece starts from a short clip shot from a train in Finland of a forest with birch trees.  The original clip is presented in real-time and then manipulated to produce various rhythms, repetitions, superimpositions, changes of pacing and orientation resulting in abstraction. Due to the camera’s (Canon S230) technical limitations the vertical trees are rendered in striated horizontals. This deformation is echoed in the editing as the journey circles back to its point of departure.
