Thayer Street enacts the process of remembering a striking but ambiguous moment. As the words change, the timelapse photography fast-forwards, rewinds, and jumps back and forth, mirroring the movement of the memory.

Notes: Turn speakers on and be patient, as it takes a minute to load. The numbers on the Java console indicate the number of images loaded (82 is max). The piece runs for 2 minutes.

Music: Introduction from “Knife in the Water” by Kryzstof Komeda.
