Five artists working in photography and video consider the passage of time in their work, incorporating fundamental ideas about duration and editing that have been pushed to different extremes. Michael Greathouse is one of these artists.

“I work in several media including video, sculpture, photography.  My work does no follow a specific theme, rather, I make work that responds to different ideas or imagery.  Most recent work is a series of short text based video loops produced exclusively with composited computer animation. I consider my films experimental. I am interested in dreams, hallucinations, and delusions…the uncanny.  Like the films of Maya Deren and the text drawings of Ed Ruscha, these short vignettes are intended to suggest, but not define, a narrative.”
