Rockweed Paintings

2005, silent

This video composition celebrates how the ebb and flow of tidewaters move rockweed along the coast of Mount Desert Island in Maine. Reversal of the color field takes place in camera so you see the same color field as the artist sees on site. In the edit, the orientation of the image and the direction of the tape are both changed to avoid jump cuts and create transitions that enhance continuity of perception. The speed of the tape is altered in accord with the proportions of the golden mean to better render the internal rhythms of the movement. Tape includes six series of rockweed images. Produced in accord with the Earthscore Notational System. Suitable for ambient viewing.
