David Carlson, digital video, “Confluence”
High Definition video 4 min. 03 sec. running time 2014

Confluence is a departure from the structure of the horizontal and vertical grid. The circle sets the image free. Surfaces of the water reflect and carry diverse messages with no effort, reeling this way, and stirring that way. Suspended grass and foam change the vision to detail, while colorful velocity creates diversion and hypnotizes the viewer with a dizzying evolution. And yet, the circle brings you back to the beginning. Offsetting the center of each circle compounds the video. Stillness thwarted by movement, unevenness forces a dizzying effect on the viewer. Life is like this. Shifting. Changing. No apparent center. Circumstance is reflected by multiple experiences.
