2013 I explorations of speed I video

The moving image (film, cinema, video, movies) are still images moving in time. The paradox is intriging and has been philosphised by Felix Deluze who wrote on the cinema extensivly in his Cinema 1: The Movement-Image (1986) and  Cinema 2: The Time-Image (1989). Also see my  web blog The Existential Enquirer: Art and Philosophy, for a short history of still and movement.

My intentions for these moving works was to  keep the camera fixed as an prosthetic objective eye on a moving world with random duration.

I was thinking of the early avant garde of Italian Futurism with artists awe struck fascination with the machine and speed at the beginning of the 20th century. Speed can be at variable velocity and these moving images are attempt to capture this visual element.
