Gladstone is throwing a stills motion exhibit and one of my friends (the same one who came on the NYC ride!) is showing.
Still Motions traces the tension between the still and the moving image, presenting works that critique the logic of traditional photography via its successor media, film and video. Each work contains a degree of stillness that is in some way destabilized to disrupt the notion of a photograph as a suspended moment in time. The interaction of the three media allow for hybrid forms of moving images to emerge, generating the uncanny within the familiar while adding a sensorial even visceral dimension to our appreciation of the still image.
The exhibit, along with about 25 others, runs to the end of the month at the Gladstone Hotel.
