2 Fragments of Motion Video Still

Category: Temporary

2 Fragments of Motion uses Super-8 film to capture brief quotations of text from works published by generations of members of his family, which are then re-shot on video. The idea is to knit phrases from different origins into a sentence that almost makes sense, but requires imagination to fill in the blanks and create relationships between the phrases. Each viewer will create meaning from the words in their own way, much like each generation of a family conforms in its own way to the needs of the time and place they live in while still maintaining a vital connection to the past. The video can be viewed several times each hour through December 31, on the screen above the main escalator/stair between Civic Plaza and Baggage Claim.
