SWITCH (from: Events Involving Artificial Lighting)

Repetition vs. Dynamism.

A light bulb is turned on and off in steady repetition. Meanwhile, a filament appears to remain unchanged. As the act progresses, the unhindered filament shatters into millions of shiny bits. The particles scatter, then dissipate as the bulb continues its routine - an attempt to create a comparison of phase-shift between imagery giving metaphor of cyclic existence.

The piece was made by overlapping a loop of standard-speed video footage [of a bulb being turned on and off] with a high-speed 16mm film [of a lit bulb being smashed]. It was originally created in 2003/2004 as part of a series of video loops meant to serve as "wallpaper" - to be used as a backdrop to one's existence within a space.
