More About This Project:     About      Elements      Video       Tech

The installation has 14 video segments in total, shown across four channels. The main projection runs one segment (13 minute loop); the monitor inside the photo booth runs 5 segments (20 minute loop); the flat panel monitor runs 4 segments (25 minute loop); and the small floor-level monitor runs 4 segments (18 minute loop).

These segments use long, minimally-edited shots that allow the user to observe and notice all that is happening onscreen. The video segments are my "notices": video that I have shot over the past year consisting of things both profound and simple such as a broken water main spurting water into the air, people sitting in a diner, rain on the windshield of a bus, shadows on the side of an apartment building, a traffic cop killing time singing to himself and yawning...
