White Out: video from F15 to S12

The video work White Out (2002) is currently being shown as a window projection at Galleri S12 in Skostredet, Bergen, where it will be on show until the end of January. The work belongs to an earlier period of a current investigation of "place" through image and sound - although in this instance it is a silent projection. Shot in streets and shopping malls  of Manhattan, the video focusses mainly on reflections of pedestrians walking past the surfaces of mirrored corporate buildings. Using extreme slow motion, the video becomes like a series of moving photographs within which the elements of the image are slowly rearranged. White Out was originally made for the exhibition "Dream vs. reality"  at Gallery F15 in 2002, a show featuring photographic and video works that position themselves in a grey zone between documentary and fiction. Sound for White Out was mixed and produced by Robert Worby.
