«The material used for my project is the same used by the coast guard to protect the migrants from the cold or from the sun as soon as they reach the coast from the sea. The thermal blanket is an iconic material, a symbol of salvation and generosity of the human being.»

Bo Gehring :: Video portraits

In his video portraits, a person lies flat on a low table while a camera, mounted on a track, hangs above them. It begins recording just below their feet, pointing straight down, and steadily crawls up their body. As this goes on, music plays, something Gehring’s subject has chosen to hear. The speed of the camera’s pan is proportional to the length of the music and the subject’s height, so that the film ends with the camera’s view above the head, just as the music fades.

Esperanza Spalding, a portrait. By Bo Gehring, 2014

Spalding chose Wayne Shorter’s “Tarde” from the 1974 album Native Dancer to be part of her portrait.In the track, Shorter plays tenor saxophone, vocals are by Milton Nascimento, Herbie Hancock is on the electric piano, David Amaro is on guitar, David McDaniel plays bass, and Roberto Silva plays the drums. Spalding says this piece of music is important because, “Herbie, Wayne and Milton are part of me.”

BALANCE

We humans we create, we work, we stay busy from birth to death and never rest. We build, aim higher, work harder, accomplish more, and to what end? “Balance” takes an abstract look at our modern world, the full and the empty spaces and time in which we live and choose to make our lives.

BALANCE is a a collaborative film by Brandon Bray and Tim Sessler
