Revolving Door

2011, 4:51 min, color, silent

Still shots of a revolving door at New York City's Church Street Station Post Office are edited together to create a sense of movement, redoubled by the piece's three-dimensionality when viewed with the proper glasses, as the opening titles suggest. Revolving Door is one of a group of works that continue concerns found throughout Jacobs' oeuvre. The rotating landscapes of earlier works and performances, in which the projector is used as a tool to create dimensionality and movement within and between still frames, here give way to a playful comment on stillness, movement, and depth.
