Unseen Lines (2009)

"Isolated marks, water speaks with air, unseen lines seek shelter" The piece is a video of the the larger video installation work. Filmed in upstate NY in March, 09, it's derived from initial ambient sounds I translate into codes, words and eventual poems and messages.The title comes from words pulled from these translations. The reflection of phone wires in a large puddle is disturbed by drops of rain causing the image to flicker with movement. I use my cell phone camera as the most basic form of technology to converse and exchange data or images. The overlapping lines on the plexi back ground and the moving image eventually converge forming a criss cross X pattern as nature pushes it's way into view. In a sense I'm tracking infinite inaudible conversations bouncing around us and through us at any given moment faster than the speed of light.
