Gate Three (2010)

Single Channel Video Loop




Gate Three is a landscape study of an ambiguous urban setting; an unused road fenced between a freeway and a pocket of suburban residences. Its landscape is sparse and empty, defined by a distinct lack of any notable characteristics. The film’s stillness invokes a comparison with contemporary landscape photography, while simultaneously provoking the expectation of some moment of punctuation which never arrives, as the space remains quiet and unchanging. In this manner, Gate Three facilitates an experience of quiet observation, slowly revealing a sense of the sublime in the absence of conventional beauty.
