Many of my video works focus on how the built environment relates to the social interaction it is designed to contain. I am using a video camera to record changes of light and movements in space and time. The video is filmed from a fixed camera position and the video footage is then made transparent and cut into one-minute segments. These segments are then layered on top of each other. During one minute the viewer sees the entire 60-minute video in real time, however simultaneously as multiple layers.
Among other, I have shot baseball stadiums and other sports arenas in New York, contrasting the monumental structure of the stadiums to the fluctuating density of the audience.
