Eye On The Sparrow, 2017

In this piece, I experimented with video and optics as an artist in residence at Bullseye Glass Co., using the sculptural lenses I made there to exaggerate moving images and exploit the properties of sunlight. Shooting through lenses made from water-filled glass globes or tubes deliberately distort moving color field studies; others, designed in a grid, refract sunlight into multiplied spectra. In concert with sound, these experiments are transporting, not to another place but to a different attunement to the phenomenal reality we find ourselves in. Eye On The Sparrow was commissioned by Chuck Johnson for his current album, Balsams. (07:20)
