Time Stepping

The film image is a row of boarded-up town houses pending demolition. Two cameras film in alternation this derelict facade from two changing viewpoints. They pan in opposing crossways movements and develop a picture view that appears to extend beyond the edges of the screen. The durations and sequencing of one shot in relation to another are not pre-scripted; the shooting patterns take the form of a space-time game where a new movement or action on one camera provokes a corresponding reaction from the second camera.
