A 5-minute video features local water fountains in slow motion, black and white, and screened through an overlay of cracked glass. The molten shapes rise and fall like a 1960’s lava lamp, forming and reforming with a sinuous viscosity. Like memories, the shapes slowly build into identifiable forms, and then gradually, break down, only to resolve into other familiar visions. Imbued with a slow rhythm, the work has a hypnotic, calming effect.
