Ocean Sky by Alex Cherney
Video art usually leaves us scratching our heads. That's because a.) we can never interpret the intention of the artist, and b.) it's hard and expensive to hang a continually running piece of video art on the wall. However, every now and then we latch onto one that needs no explanation or interpretation. Alex Cherney created this visually stunning piece using over 30 hours of time lapse video of the shore and sky on the Australian coast. It is definitely best viewed full screen, and in a dimly lit, if not dark, room. In the grand scheme, we are very, very small.
