Abstract
The artist's camera is pointed outward, through the windows of a revolving restaurant, toward the cityscape of Vancouver’s West End. With the restaurant acting as moving tripod, the video begins by panning clockwise, slowly passing cargo ships, skyscrapers, Stanley Park, and mountains on Vancouver’s North Shore. Maintaining its slowly creeping pace, the video progresses, subsequently recording the movement of cruise liners and smaller vessels in Coal Harbour. Midway through the video, the action reverses—allowing boats and cars to travel backwards—gradually replaying the previous views.
