Composition 317 marks an important juncture in the Walking Wave Series.
It is the first of pieces assembled from new video footage shot closer to the subjects. The images were simplified and had less variation between frames. When assembled into a Row the composition had a sinuous quality reminiscent of the visual trails noted during psychedelic experiences.
Since revealing and exploring that visual “wave,” the rhythms of lateral movement, lies at the root of my intentions for the Walking Wave Series, Composition 317 was very influential on what was to come.
