Dixie
27 mins
2005


This footage was taken in the marshes of Dixie Plantation, outside Charleston, SC. Over the course of a few years, I made regular visits to the site, collecting footage under different lighting conditions and varying water levels. I am fascinated with the way video translates intense and varying light and how slight manipulations of light and speed introduce patterns that are familiar from other experiences of nature. Dixie is a continuous projection of these clips, which slowly morph nto one another.
