Providence Trawling

The film describes the shape of the boat as she rolls in the sea. The camera follows the lines of gunwales and describes their relationship to the changing horizon from forward and aft positions on the boat. Selected stills from the film spill out across the gallery wall and re-draw the shape of the boat as the projection continues to define the motion. A time-switch regularly alternates the lighting from dark to light, making both stills and projection apparent.
