Horsetail Falls, 2018, 6min 29sec, digital video

Horse Tail Falls deconstructs a found photo of an idyllic Catskills waterfall by drawing connections to a similarly named, but unrelated falls 3000 miles away. 
This other Horsetail Falls is known as the “firefall” for a rare phenomenon in which the right conditions of sunlight make it appear as if it was glowing
a bright, fiery red. Through direct, real-time manipulation of feedback loops and signal flow itself, the image is made material and conductive across time.

As the video progresses; scans, zooms and pans pair with a crescendoing sounds of swarming flies to reveal latent and suggestive details within the image.
At the close, all comes full circle, as wipe patterns create the illusion of a swarm multicolored flies' wings to overtake the frame.
Or perhaps these ”wings” are just the overlapping corners of a stack of photos tossed onto a tabletop…
