Ruby

I shot the source video for this a while back after I gave our dog, Ruby, a bath. I chose a 12 second section section with several layers of video timed slightly differently than the others to see how the sound and the video would go out of sync (thinking about Steve Reich’s work with tape loops and phases). What begins with a small terrier frantically trying to dry herself off on our unmade bed quickly evolves into an abstract display of flowing forms, color and sound that removes itself more and more from it’s original context.
