About

This video surveillance of a cast shadow, seen advancing along the face of a window, is directed toward the ocular phenomena clarified in Merleau-Ponty's work. As the centered window frame marks the video screen into sections, they are also perceived by us as "anchored" objects. Part of a larger unfolding, these anchors and points of reference are amongst a series of other elements that comprise this perspective. Some, although out of sight (such as the shadow-producing sun) are nevertheless present before the viewer's eye (i. e. the specter of the tree). –P. G.
