THAW – 2010 / 3:48 / HD

A simple film made from two images of water comments on the illusion of movement that is the essence of the moving picture, a profound oxymoron. The photographic camera freezes the water and the movie camera allegedly thaws it out. The protagonist inThaw is shutter speed and the plot is the slow dissolve from an image exposed at 1/250th to the same image taken at 1/2 of a second together with the gradual swelling of sound which appears to transform a fixed image into a moving image. Our desire for movement, action and temporal release is so strong that we see what we know to be absent.
