Time lapse from week-long LIVE broadcast as part of The Set Speaks, excerpt, HD video, color, silent

Two week-long, live, static shots — a still life, a landscape — are made dynamic by orbiting lights and ceaseless time. Text, made dynamic by the reader, plays alongside wondering, “what is it, by any other name?”

This piece aired on ACRETV.org as part of The Set Speaks, programmed by Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney. More information about that show, along with numerous images, can be found here.
