Blue Mountains, Australia

1988, 6:16 min, color, sound

This formal study of reflections of light and shadow in water is accompanied by the ambient sound of trickling water. In Blue Mountains, Australia, Hoover gradually freezes the image, while the audio continues unabated. Despite the specificity of place in the title, Hoover does not depict a naturalistic landscape, but evokes an inner, meditative state.
