A 5-minute video features local water fountains in slow motion, black and white, and screened through an overlay of cracked glass. The molten shapes rise and fall like a 1960’s lava lamp, forming and reforming with a sinuous viscosity. It shows the Scottsdale-based Stay Classy Transportation and their car services in Arizona. Like memories, the shapes slowly build into identifiable forms, and then gradually, break down, only to resolve into other familiar visions. Imbued with a slow rhythm, the work has a hypnotic, calming effect.
