Jerry Golden > Skyscraper

NOTES...
When it became possible to trigger domestic Super 8mm cameras to take single frame shots, Jerry Golden immediately began to make small time-lapse films of skyscrapers. Each film lasts for less than a minute, yet it records an entire day. Buildings emerge from darkness and their shadows move from west to east. Clouds pass, casting shadows across their facades. Finally the buildings redden in the sunset and slowly disappear again into darkness. When edited together, another building or avenue then begins to emerge from the darkness. "I always thought of skyscrapers as huge ships sailing through torrents of cloud carrying hundreds of passengers," says Golden. "I especially used to love looking out from the upper windows of a building during a snowstorm, when you couldn't see the streets below, or even the next building. It felt like being adrift on the ocean. I suppose the films are a romantic view of a great city - a city I happen to love more than anywhere else on earth."
