STILL
video, performance
00:00 looped
2011

I stood in a snowstorm videotaping the landscape outside of my window. The tape lasted for 60 minutes and so I stood still for 60 minutes, giving myself to the image while enduring a mild hypothermia of Michigan's winter. The resulting video footage was later sped up until a single image - a still - remained. In turn this became an intense trigger for the experience of internalizing the landscape, still producing bone deep chills three years later. The live processing of the 00:00 sec video loop appears no different than a slide, but is suggestive of an ongoing process of embodied memory.
