Moving Pictures

Sometimes accidents can be good. While framing pieces in Slusser with my physical frame to give them new context, I accidentally recorded this video, giving the frame an additional context. One could imagine that this serious matter (in this case murder) could come to life when framed by something that evokes memory (a frame with flowers and a mouse, that conjures memories of childhood or even a grandparent's house).

  1. I like the accident of this video, the brevity also, a fleeting piece of action, a video breath, a sigh, the fleeting nature of which reminds me of the accident (one way of framing it) of temporary intersections in which things come together, one thing enters the path of another, sometimes tragically —had one participant in the crossing of paths arrived just seconds earlier or later, there may have been no intersection at all.

    Something of magnitude happened; the frame, the focus arrived, and jarred inaction into a second of activity: some of the power of notice.
