Silence dominates the work, as does the screen rectangle, which cuts off the “image” from a life time-space continuum and imposes upon the image its particular character.  Within it, there is a play between tonalities, textures, large and small shapes, horizontals and verticals, and inevitably, simple and complex life associations. The camera view remains stationary throughout the nine-minute take, but within there are incredible nuances of motion, rhythm, and change. Staying with the work from moment to moment, and lending oneself to what is actually there might reveal what is not visible on first glance. What is “mist,” anyway?—Ernie Gehr
