Visual perception relies on the brain's ability to combine a continuous flux of visual fragments into a consistent internal representation of the surroundings. The eyes are constantly scanning the field of view, transforming light into electricity in an erratic dance of physics, chemistry and biology. Along a River is one of a series of moving paintings created by deconstructing and reconstructing this process. The source material is a handheld video recording of a walk along the Hudson river. The lens points by free association to anything and everything of interest while moving along a trajectory. The footage is then sped up, stretched, sampled, fragmented spatially and temporally and reassembled, removing focus away from object in favor of percept and construct in an attempt to manifest the structure internally representing the original scene in the mind rather than the consensual hallucination of reality.
