The “Movement” series turns the frames of a one second of digital video into 24 lithographs. A half-tone pattern is applied to each frame. However, the orientation of the pattern moves clockwise (thus the name) from one print to another, thus hinting at the passage of time happening between successive frames. These prints are the size of a laptop screen (9.25×15”), the most common medium for viewing videos today.

The following two animated GIF’s visualize the succession of prints in the series, first the whole prints, and then a smaller, enhanced-detail one, which shows the movement of the half-tone pattern. Below them, you can see larger versions of some of the prints from this series.
