Video Panorama of New York during which the Camera Fails to Distinguish the City from a Snowstorm


A snowstorm obscuring new york city, shot from a high floor of a building in Brooklyn. The piece is edited from the moments in which the atmosphere was so dense that the camera could not separate the city and the storm, and the autofocus pulses as it tries to focus. The storm was recorded for seven hours, and the footage was divided into seven parts, one monitor for each hour of the storm. This arrangement flattens time, freeing the image from narrative and allowing the entire duration of the storm to be visible at once. The result is a physical manifestation of a failure of translation as the camera reaches the optical limit of understanding what it sees.
