"surface of the rio grande" LAAW
december 2017 The film "surface of the rio grande" was created for Land Arts of the American West and in total length runs at 12 minutes. The pixelated footage forces viewers to take note of color and shape impressions to read the image. A noted horizon may allow viewers to understand the footage relays the reflection of a late afternoon sunset. Moving light pixels change slowly throughout the entirety of the film, a minimal transition, one that points to Bill Viola’s notion that human understanding of time exists in a varied frequency setting than that of non-humans.
