Clouds #10 (refugees)

2005, Wall-mounted kinetic video sculpture

One from a series of miniature works inspired by Alfred Stieglitz’s Equivalent Series(1922-35), a photographic study of clouds as pure pattern. In each work, a cloud formation is fashioned from cotton wool and other materials and affixed to a cylinder. The cylinder is mounted to a motor, which rotates it slowly. A live video camera captures this image which gives the appearance of clouds moving across the sky. In the foreground of the live video image, a group of refugees walk slowly single file down a road beneath an unforgiving sky.
