Beggar's Prayer

1986, 2:45 min, color, sound

Shot in Morocco, Beggar's Prayer abstracts naturalistic imagery of the Moroccan landscape through image processing. Gorewitz's abstraction and reconstruction of the image both mirrors and alters Islamic and early Hebraic art's "geometric repatterning of non-representational motifs."

Video: Shalom Gorewitz. Music composed and performed with Brooks Williams.
