Transient

How does one visually process any great City, especially one like New York, dominated by its verticality? Transient was created from visual snapshots at a rapid pace on rapid transit, in cabs, on foot, mirroring the rapidity with which we see/don’t see what’s in or not quite in our line of vision. Even in stillness, so much interplay presents.

Three panel installation built to encase the viewer in a cathedral of light and sound. Soundscapes constructed from music by Sawako Kato, Philip Glass or random noise can be selected by the viewer to change the experience.

Transient

A video created from the manipulation of sequential stills of the city captured over several weekends. With music by Sawako Kato or Philip Glass or random noise.

Do we ever really visually process any great City, especially one like New York, dominated by its verticality? Transient gathers visual snapshots at a rapid pace on rapid transit, in cabs, on foot, mirroring the rapidity with which we see/don’t see what’s in or not quite in our line of vision. Even in stillness, so much interplay presents.
