(Water Video 2005)

2005, 10:48 min, color, silent

This piece was recorded during the runup to the war in Iraq. On March 23rd, 2003, video artist Paul Ryan stationed himself atop a large stone on Halibut Point, along the Coast of Cape Ann, above Boston. During the flood tide, with a hand held camera, he recorded the breaking surf. The recording was all done in a negative color field. The edit reverses the direction of the flood tide.
