this is it, forever
Taking as a starting point the cliche phrase, “I wish this moment could last forever,” this project attempts to extend the fleeting into the infinite. A never-ending, non-linear sequence of figures begins to cross the frame of the camera, heading out to some unspecified, never-arriving event. The longer the viewer watches the screen, the denser and livelier the crowd becomes. However, when the screen is left unwatched, the crowds slowly thin out and dwindle away down to an empty street. The video then presents the sense of an almost-never quite arriving event – a perfect moment and a glimpse of eternity that holds together only as long as the viewer cares to keep watching.
