BRIDGE 710,  2018

 

Duration – 176 minute seamless loop (10 minute detail, shown in lightbox)
Video formats – 4K + 1080p HD
Exhibition – lightbox or projection
Soundtrack – silent

 

This long-duration video loop was made from a 30 second (710 frame) segment of Super 8 film footage looking across Vancouver’s harbour. Its metaphorical ‘bridge’ is between art world mega-categories: time-based art forms versus plastic/spatial. The artwork’s tempo constantly slows, then increases, throughout the work causing the viewer’s attention to shift between motif and montage. At its slowest, attention is drawn to the film’s surface artifacts, its scratches and other analog identifying marks, emphasizing its nature as a spatial work. At its most up-beat, viewers experience a shift in favour of rhythm, where they ‘enter time’, a traditional cinematic illusion that’s modulated and interrupted by the film lab’s pulsating, chemical blooms.
