Caroline

Caroline

A moonrise over Newhall, California, in July 2020, recontextualized via sound from a spring pond in Caroline, New York, from July 2011.

A meditation on time, attention, memory, and reverie.

Sound from the breaking of spring echoes into blurred and hypnotic summer evening lights, constructing a fantastical location built from time and distance, steeped in our perceptions and reminiscences. Its slow-moving image, generated by pushing a consumer camcorder to its limits of resolution and light sensitivity, abstracts the land- and life-scape of its subject, breaking with a narrative approach to allow a viewer to feel, hear, and see directly.

Visiting Caroline, we sift through our memories for afterimages that help us make sense of the present moment.
