In George Quasha's axial video, fingers are holding graphite in the process of doing two-handed axial drawing, and in the actual process and movement they embody a configurative state somehow equivalent to the drawing itself. This embodiment of configuration (a state between figuration and abstraction) is visually and aurally accessible only under the specific intimate condition of video slow-motion, as a time/space-based art/music. By focusing below the frame rate threshold (30 fps) the piece exposes the otherwise invisible gaps between rapid actions and invents its own strange beauty in which space itself is figurative and image is temporalized to the point of abstraction. Recorded on Amtrak train between Rhinecliff and NYC in 2005.
