Synopsis/Description
A motion study of high-speed cloud formations. Presented at unfamiliar angles, coalescing movement combine and transform into bizarre fluid forms while progressively offset across 15, 40 and, occasionally, 600 asynchronous split-screens. The music soundtrack is based upon “Edith” by Cib0, an experimental music collaboration based in Italy. They have kindly lent their permission to use a portion of the original composition for this video.

Biography

Artist Statement
I have spent most of my life as a graphic designer, and recently as a graphic design educator who teaches and practices in video. Much of this work is imbued with formal/visual explanations for the Hermeneutic Circle: the understanding of meaning derived from interrelationships between part and whole. This is embodied in the video image that is broken and reassembled; fragmented and reconstituted; a union made of asynchrony. Chaotic and irregular movements converge into unified movement; small multiples begin to move as a system.
