Composed of numerous 6-20 second animated stills, each derived from the multiple-image photographic panoramas. I portray fast-moving climatic events against the stationary Joshua Trees and rock formations. I use animations that serve to accentuate static photographs. Compressing time and accelerating temporal shifts, as perhaps we are all feeling in our lives. At times we are thrust into the abstract and then the surreal. I aim to lead us on a journey from visual apprehension to awe coalescing as we experience the sublime.
