Semaphore Song, installation
with 24 photographs & two flags, 2004
24 photographs comprise a cinematic
thought, a moving-picture-second.
In the ancient flag language of semaphore, two flags crossed down means
that a word is over; it is a present space. That means that, if one wanted
to stay within 24 characters, one must, in composing a statement, remain
aware that each word is actually one letter longer than you'd think. One
must account for the spaces.
A photo performance inspired by Charles Ray. An image poem.
