TimeForm #4 {Trees/Hands} (2002)

This work, TimeForm #4 {Trees/Hands}, uses the video medium as graphic form by exploring the concept of figure/ground reversal within a recorded image. One can view the objects within the environment that was recorded. However, most will notice that the video is also broken apart by time. The collage of different times creates a 2D image within the recorded 3D space. The sun then acts as paint (hues), and the videotaped scenery acts as a canvas. Thus, the figure is the form of times displayed simultaneously and the ground is the recorded environment.
