Lake Effect Light with Colour Channel Separations
2019 | 4K Video “Still”
This “still frame” is selected from an original artwork video. Created out front of a lake cottage in Ontario, it depicts seamlessly forever-looping moments of sparkle and refraction on water during a seemingly endless summer afternoon. Slightly out of focus, the viewer can enter into its dream-like calm-minded state increased by the slow motion effect of light flickering across the scene. Multiple frames of video footage are layered onto transparencies, each of different colour palettes.

“I have often sat out looking at this exact view with a glass of wine in the afternoon and wanted to share something about that experience.”
