2004-2005, projected slide installation with 80 35mm slides on a carousel approximately 12 minutes (9 seconds per slide)
Verging deals with the peculiarly photographic tension of the still image. I am the editor of a group of quiet, decisive moments that are appropriated from films. The perspective of the camera in every image is similar (from behind a lone woman pausing within an architectural space or landscape), and throughout it serves to amplify a tense moment preceding an unknown decision or act. Ultimately Verging deals with anticipation, expectation, and anxiety. The series is now made up of more than 200 35mm-slides. Each image is to be projected consecutively one after another on a timer. 80 images per carousel can be exhibited in each slide projector.
