Flash to Bang, 2002
3 channel video / audio installation, 15 minutes (looped)
Flash to Bang, shot from a rooftop in Queens looking towards Manhattan, offers a meditation on an explosive sky over the city. Chaos, aggression and harnessed energy are addressed in this piece, along with the notion of the inherent struggle between the backward and forwards flow of energy; between exploding and imploding.
Appearing as scattered, abstract sunspots, pulling back into themselves, becoming concentrated in their intensity, these fireworks in reverse and forward motion weave atmosphere, color, light into a rich ethereal tapestry punctuated by layered, warlike sounds.
