Transfigurations (2005)
digitally manipulated photographs of landscapes and natural phenomena presented as multi-layered video

Music: 61 X 5, for processed instrument samples (Steve Kornicki)

A flowing, 50-minute exploration in slow-motion video and the first in a series concerned with the transformation of still-life, natural objects. In the first half of the piece, black and white photographs transition to digitally transformed and manipulations versions of the photos. The video's second half consists of the same process with color photos. Gradually, the photos become completely obscured, and the piece concludes with transfigured images of the original photos from the previous sections.
