INFINITY

Duration of Video: INFINITY (4 minutes, 23 seconds)

INIFINITY is a silent digital video, 2010.

 

The heart of INFINITY is a film passage that began as an experiment by Thomas Edison to merge sound with moving image. For more than a century this film had quite literally lost its voice. However, even without its sound track, it appears remarkably current in the context of today’s cultural landscape. This loop is a celebration of bodies in motion. One pair spinning in awkwardly tender circles while the other player sends sound waves down a cone in search of a place to land (to be recorded) in the hope of being reunited with its image in another time and place. When looped in an endless mirrored world of forward and reverse, this timeless sequence seems to last forever.
