The Reflecting Pool

In „The Reflecting Pool” all movement and change in an otherwise still scene is confined to the reflections on the surface of a pool in the woods. Suspended in time, a man hovers in a frozen, mid-air leap over the water, as subtle techniques of still-framing and multiple keying join disparate layers of time into a single coherent image.

Bill Viola (US), Video, 7 min, 1977-1979
