Bathing

1977, 4:30 min, color, sound

Hill's early formalist works explore the manipulation of electronic color and image density through the camera obscura and image processing devices. Of these tapes, Hill has written that "much of the subject matter and the expressionistic method of working underline and in some sense parody the traditional medium of painting." In Bathing Hill transforms the traditional image of a bathing figure by subtly integrating color video and digitized, re-scanned stills.
