Maarten ROTS


A one minute movie from a fixed point observation at a quiet intersection in
a small rural town. In just a 15 second segment of this movie, several automobiles, motorcycles, and bicycles pass by, given the impression that this intersection has a lot of traffic. However, the truth is that the 15 second segment was the only occasion during the one hour fixed point observation that vehicles passed through the intersection. This is a work that touches on the essence of visual imagery without resorting to image processing and other visual techniques.
