LUCID: February/March
2008, 5:21

LUCID is an ongoing experiment in everyday “science fiction”. Utilizing common portable and makeshift technology, LUCID attempts to capture scattered momentary emotions and intimate textures through a collection of 30-second microscopic videos.

Gathered daily through the artist’s OCD tendencies to maintain and arrange, the project presents synthesized vignettes of captured traffic, skin, fabric, and those elements often missed in transit. Both carnal and ethereal, the resultant specimens breathe new life from their isolation, creating shadows of instances both past and to come.

All footage and audio is captured with an LG cell phone with a lens fabricated from old CD-ROM parts.
February/March is a sample from the two-month period and the first installment of LUCID.
