Where: Central City Library
View Finder is the Film Archive's moving image presentation that is installed in the Auckland Central Library window on Lorne Street. View Finder runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The Film Archive's current moving image presentation is FW3 (2013) by Josh Hamilton. This presentation runs from 16 April - 7 May 2014.
A still from FW3 (2013) by Josh Hamilton.
My videos explore the fluidity of cause and effect. I often disrupt improvised and staged situations by dragging them out via repetition or the slowing down of time.

FW3 records an unequal race between sounds and light. Seen close up, this high energy event is instantaneous, but from 1.4 kilometres away, a delay stagnates the situation, divorcing the event into two independent phenomena.
