?Advance? is an exploration in ?reductive video.?<br /><br />
Using custom software, each frame of video is analyzed against the previous. Each frame is then reduced to only the advancing (or new) pixels. By displaying only the new pixels, the video itself is reduced to only the important elements needed to describe movement, demanding that our memory of this place or a similar place be enacted to complete the piece.<br /><br />
Ideally presented as an endless loop, the audience is free to meditate on the movement. As each person?s eyes adjust to the lighting, the subtle changes in color that also occur become more evident, moving the work from a comparison of lightness and darkness to a full exploration of advancing pixels.
