of Water, of Place

1979, 9:25 min, color, sound

The natural beauty of a Minnesota lake is the source for this sensual, impressionistic study of light on water. Composing with his portable camera held upside-down, sideways, and close to the water's surface, Byrne undermines gravity and perspectival space to focus on the mesmerizing fluctuations and gradations of color, luminosity, and motion of flowing water and glimpsed horizon. Light, as it is reflected on moving water, is captured by the video camera and transformed into poetic abstraction by the artist. With Byrne's signature camera work, this fluid composition evokes romanticism and subtle drama.
