"Which Is To Say" is an immersive, constantly evolving, ten channel video installation which was most recently exhibited at the Laguna Art Museum from October 27th, 2013 - February 2nd, 2014.
Inspired by an observation by John Cage—"No need to move the camera. (Pictures will come to it.)" the videos are in effect and intention photographs which explore the essence of time. The piece aims to create a contemplative space in which the viewer’s experience of time both collapses and extends. Each shot has no particular beginning or ending, and ranges from one minute to an hour.
The installation invokes the friction and fluidity between familiar polarities—human and animal, sacred and secular, culture and nature, gravity and lightness. Shot at locations throughout the United States, Europe and India, the work brushes apparently disparate things against each other, creating numerous relationships and juxtapositions and thus multiple interpretations and readings.
For the most part the work is silent, however (very brief) sound is used periodically to interrupt the space and to add another layer of possible meaning to the piece.
