Diabole (an axial landscape) (2006) (11 min. 07 sec.): Recorded in highly axialized rapid movement of a small 3-CCD Panasonic digital camcorder suspended from a strap and dangled over a roadside scene close to the ground. The scene includes long red pods suggesting devil fingers. Motion is slowed below the frame rate (30 fps). Deep sound of camcorder brushing against things and other site noises slowed to a level somewhere between sub-audible and sub-interpretable. Full version of a work exhibited as installation (designated “Dorsky Configuration,” 4 min. 43 sec.) at The Samuel Dorsky Museum, State University of New York at New Paltz: June 23, 2007—October 7, 2007, “George Quasha: art is & Axial Works in Stone, Graphite & Video,” curated by Brian Wallace.

Valley (an axial landscape) (2006) [Dorsky Configuration, for Brian Wallace, Curator], (7 min. 34 sec.): Recorded on a small 3-CCD Panasonic digital camcorder from a fast moving train (between Rhinebeck and New York City), facing into the light through trees and over the Hudson River near sunset; slowed down below the frame rate (30 FPS) and edited. Deep sound of train and other site noises slowed to a nearly sub-audible level. Short version of a longer work, created for exhibition as installation at The Samuel Dorsky Museum, SUNY New Paltz, New York: June 23, 2007—October 7, 2007, “George Quasha: Art Is & Axial Works in Stone, Graphite & Video.”

Torque (an axial landscape) (2006) [Dorsky Configuration, for Brian Wallace, Curator], (3 min. 43 sec.): Recorded in high speed whirling of a small 3-CCD Panasonic digital camcorder at the end of a strap and in an arc of 360 degrees viewing trees from the ground to the sky and back around; slowed below the frame rate (30 FPS) and edited. Deep sound of camcorder whirling in air (lens cap banging) and other site noises slowed to a level nearly sub-audible and uninterpretable. Short version of a longer work, created for exhibition as installation at The Samuel Dorsky Museum, SUNY New Paltz, New York: June 23, 2007—October 7, 2007, “George Quasha: art is & Axial Works in Stone, Graphite & Video.”
