Bush Blinks

2005, 4:22 min, color, sound

Writes Gorewitz: "Bush Blinks is based on internet pictures that collected on my computer while I was in Israel during the spring mixed with a few digital stills I shot there. At first I was playing with the 'blink' filter in the editing software, making it look as through Bush and other world leaders were just annoying moments in time as they flicked from one to another. Then I started to think more about blinking as a possible visual clue to lies. The video ends with the question: who will blink first, the US or Iran?"

Flash film: Shalom Gorewitz. Music: Balkan Beat Box.
