Cataract Cinémathèque (2008–2010)

This work asks the question, “How much time can a single image represent?” I have written software in Processing to reduce segments of feature films into a series of still images, each representing an average of light and color from approximately one minute of running time. The resultant images are as much a function of the parameters of my program as they are of the editing within the original film. The fluid images explore the territory between sharp frozen moments and the blur born of long exposures, revealing unexpected beauty as they snatch a hint of recognition from the brink of abstract noise.
