Glide is a looping dual-screen installation that meditates on ice skating s a personal experience of alchemy. Glide contrasts the scientific with the poetic, asking the viewer to grapple with logical explanations of a physical experience or to surrender to its unknowable mystery. The installation consists of two 16mm film projectors arranged side-by-side in the exhibition space. The right-hand projection is a loop of a long ice skater, drawn with India ink on paper. The left-hand projection is a loop of text, which explores the various scientific theories of how skates glide on ice. When the modern physics fail to explain it, the text moves into a description of skating as alchemy.
