View a video capturing Niagara Falls flowing slowly upwards.  In Slow Falls Rising, turning the image upside down and slowing it down has taken the gravity and speed, but not the wonder, out of the iconic waterfall.

An interest in how film and video are like a series of photographs, shown one after another, has led the artist to experiment with different aspects of video, like time and direction.

Video produced in technical collaboration with Greg Woodbury.
