Time-based media: video by Aidan Fraser
Music by Gregory Allen Isakov
“Wirewalk” represents my first foray into time-based media—with Fraser’s current random b-roll and time-lapse shots of the San Francisco Bay Area projected onto and around its sculptural form. Recalling the places of my formative years as an artist this footage reveals what is seen by the woman from the high wire. As a self-portrait of sorts, this precarious sculpture testifies to the courage and intention required for being an artist and finding balance in a crazy and unstable world.
