Sculpture Studies

2015

I walk directly toward various sculptures while holding a camera. I manually scale and transform the video so the sculpture remains the same size throughout the duration of the shot irregardless of the camera motion. This either involved scaling the image up, or shrinking the frame down as I approached the sculptures as I edit the footage. In this second case, the frame jumps around the screen in accordance with the inconsistencies of walking. My own ambulatory movement becomes animated by the frame of the video on a larger dark screen. I imagined the sculptures asserting their solidity against my own idiosyncratic movement. I do not move around the sculptures. Only approaching head on, I deny the sculptures some of their ability to guide me circularly. While my subjects remain the same size, viewing angles and fidelities change.
