2015 with Jeremiah Moore. Multi-channel video/sound/scape. 24 minutes.
Calculating how short-duration cinema might set about to examine the experience of a tree that plays out in year-long cycles, this 24-minute video experimented with polylinear construction and polytemporal scaling of sound and image that were recorded during one 24-hour slice of street life in the span of a city block. 8K video (7680×4320) with 5.1 mix has been downsized to HD (1920×1080) with stereo audio for previewing on Vimeo. A preliminary study for The Social Lives of Urban Trees, Folia combined observational cinema techniques with interval recording to trace characteristic rhythms, humors, drifts, and parallel passages through the sidewalk forest.
