A meditation on temporality, the computational video work Clock: Jerusalem to Tel Aviv
uses footage shot from the window of a taxi van and synchronizes the clips to an annual clock. Structured to reflect current time, the night landscape along Highway 1 changes subtly – keeping the viewer continuously on the road somewhere between the two cities. Likened to the idea of time travel, Kanarek poses a theoretical beginning in the ancient city, and an ending point in one that is modernized.
Calling the half, three-quarter and full hours, time in this looping visual experience is marked by audio recordings of church bells, dogs and crows.
