Color, Sound, DV.
Once, at someone's house, we were flipping through the channels. There was one public station where the feed had frozen, apparently while fading in (to judge from the exposure), on an image of a bridge over water. Throughout the evening while flipping through the channels we would come across it, still frozen in time, an anonymous bridge over an anonymous body of water. I jokingly called it "the bridge show", but then it struck me what a wonderful idea it really was, and how excited I was at seeing an image whose inertia was the polar opposite of all the others on TV. As far as TV was concerned, time had stopped. But it goes by at the same rate no matter how fast or slow the images flash. I wish the bridge show was still on. It would be my favorite show. I'd put it on and put my TV on a shelf somewhere and just walk around the house, doing other things, occasionally checking back to see how the bridge was doing, on a tiny little video monitor functioning as a bookend. But I don't run the TV stations (thankfully, I suppose), but I do run my camera. So this static image can be traced to the mythical bridge show, but then I got playful with my radio, daydreaming of Stockhausen, and recorded the audio in one take, chopping it up as I saw fit. It would have been better if Stockhausen had scored it, but he died. The title comes from the obvious fast-forwarding that goes on, as if the sky was a projection on a screen, which it probably is.
