Extract from Image Every 3 Seconds (2003)
The work is constructed around and within a light installation by Charles Balfour. A small square of constantly changing light patterns is projected onto the floor. With the addition of Simon Keep’s sound, Giannotti counterpoints constantly changing phrases of movement that are set against and within this light installation. Thus these movements, parts of the body and sometimes the whole body, are caught and illuminated momentarily – every three seconds. Each short phrase is independent of the next.
