Analogies: studies in the movement of time (1977) – 14min. 16 mm film, color, sound

The film uses a variety of multiple screen formats to create an intriguing series of visual riddles. Simple camera movements are rendered “diachronically”- several different aspects of the action are presented on the screen at once. By playing with time delays between these images, new kinds of space, action, gesture, and temporality have been found. Generated from structural principles, the film is both lyrical and sensual and provokes a new understanding of time and cinema. It was included in the American Film Festival “Film as Art” in 1980 Amos Vogel: “sensuous.., sumptious…, concentrated power”

“When Rose fills the screen with twenty-five images, the experience is akin to music.  An image ripples across the screen as a theme echoes across the instruments of an orchestra, giving way to complicated designs, each image an arabesque in a Persian rug.” – Noel Carroll, Soho Weekly News
