Homage to the Wind

HD video

These videos use Josef Albers Homage to the Square, in which he investigated color in context, to think about my perceptions of the environment in context. They're experiments in juxtaposition, to challenge how I see my world. These five short clips (excerpts here) are about "seeing" the invisible, in this case the wind. Interestingly, they also work as color experiments. In some, there appear to be digital artifacts of color jumps, but if you cover squares from view, it becomes obvious that there are no artifacts, and that the video is smooth and continuous. The perceived jumps in color are the result of our eyes adjusting to shifting juxtapositions.
