Gesturing the Mix and the Montage, 2016
LCD screen with digital video, 1:34 minute loop.
Gesturing the Mix and the Montage, 2016, depicts a figure navigating the cliffy
landscape of the California coastline. The figure, clothed in a morph suit,
performs spontaneous gestures of digitally compositing and editing video. This
piece re-imagines the physical process of film making that has since been
disembodied through the emergence of the digital editing platform. Gesturing the
Mix and the Montage features time-lapse and jump cuts that mimic the
movement of the figure’s hands.
