Still Lives (2010)

Video Portraits
60 x 45 x 3 in
One of thirteen elegiac video portraits inspired by Goya's Black paintings and commissioned by the Washington Care Center, a long term care facility. 

This is an unfolding of real time. Half an hour of film was half an hour in each person’s life. The accretion of quiet gestures reveals a reality beyond the single snapshot. Physical integrity begins to wear down, focus fades in and out, and there is the struggle to maintain.
