Crossings
Experimental video 2002 jump
4 min

This video was created live during the tour with the video-impro-trio 242.pilots February 2002. It is based on the principle of taking just a small part of each video frame and building layers of these fragments on top of each other, the Resulting image is a collage of different timefragments.
«Taking images of people crossing intersections at crosswalks, Gilje weaves a tapestry of intersecting lines within each of which the people can be seen. Layered layer of lines containing images of people crossing build up over the course of the four minutes to create a nice visual metaphor for the act of making one's way across the street. »
