In the Moment

In the Moment 2003 video 5:30 minutes

In the Moment is a video illustration of a brief ecstatic trip; one which lasts only an instant. In the normal course of a day, one can experience a glimpse of the sheer joy of living, and of the beautiful fabric of nature. It lasts for only an instant, and it is indescribable in words. I sometimes get these flashes while in nature, and other times they happen while experiencing artwork, or just in an inspired moment. In the Moment is an attempt to portray this kind of experience. For this piece, I used a technique of processing video by super-imposing successive frames. Each frame becomes a layering of time. This creates a blurring or trailing of the images.
