Touchless, 2005

Touchless, 2005, digital video, 3min 8sec

Touchless is comprised of a single, unedited sequence taken from a fixed camera as I drove through a “touchless” carwash. Like my 2-D artwork, it reflects my interest in found abstraction and modern composition. Particular to this piece is a minimalist grid upon which changes occur. If the origin of the sequence is not immediately discerned by the viewer, the video becomes quite mysterious, a perceptual journey rather than a play on formalism.
