    Video title:

    Present Tense
    2007, 8:40
    Present Tense juxtaposes 8mm tourist footage – taken from the top of the World Trade Centre prior to its destruction – with video images of that footage playing in the 8mm video camera on which it was shot. The piece serves to demonstrate the illusory power of video’s immediacy, its feeling of ‘present tense.’
