Composition for water

4,32 min. 1988

Video footage from an underwater camera served here as the compositional material. To produce this footage, I invited friends to go bathing with me at a lake in the summer of 1988. I brought along a Sony Handycam I rented from a video store and for which an underwater case was available. Since the encased camera was no larger than a ball, we kept the camera rolling and played water polo with it. The montage was then done on a U-Matic Low-Band cutting table.
