These images were shot using an Arri 35mm BL4, and advancing the shutter manually with my fingers inside the camera body every 30 seconds. The camera was encased in a change tent, with the lens sticking out one sleeve, and my hand in the other sleeve with the body open so my fingers could advance the inching knob manually. I set my iphone to ring an alarm every 30 seconds so I could advance the shutter. Each time lapse involved me sitting up with the camera for about 8-12 hours doing this process all night.
This footage, once edited and colour corrected, will be used in the 90 minute documentary: Spectres of Shortwave.
This footage is also used in the gallery installation: Radio Towers Like Windchimes which is currently installed at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown until May 18, 2014.
