Watching for the Queen
Canada / 11:00 / 1973 / silent / b/w
A mathematically ordered restructuring of two seconds (48 frames) of stock newsreel footage, primarily concerned with the frame as information unit and the change in formation between frames.

"The first frame of the original shot is frozen for 1200 frames (approximately one minute), the next two for 600 frames, the next four for 300 frames, etc. The result is a slowly accelerating montage and a concretization of the 'real' event through time. It is as if a re-invention of the motion picture domain of 'reality' was being undertaken. The transformation of a 'sea of anonymous faces' into a 'narrative of personalities' becomes a distinct possibility as movement and reflexive action are consolidated." - Al Razutis, Vancouver Art Gallery
