crossing
single-channel video, silent. 10:33 loop, 2006

A video shot looking from Windsor Ontario, across the Detroit River toward Detroit Michigan. At first all seems normal.  Then ghost-like images of cars appear to be crossing on or under the water surface, across the international border to and from the two cities.  For a time suspension of disbelief is possible, due to the otherwise passive scene of the water and waterfronts.
Video was shot as seen, without in-camera or post-editing "tricks" through an angled window that reflected the image of traffic outside.
