About the series

These works depict trajectories of flight in and around the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta in California, captured in January of 2020.

How it works

The process begins by capturing a moving subject on video, using a camera on a sturdy tripod. I then extract the individual frames from the video to produce an image sequence. Then, with pixel-processing and computational techniques, the frames are sequentially superimposed, to make a progression that reveals the otherwise invisible tracks that the moving subjects leave behind.

Check out this blog post where I explain some recent improvements to my video processing toolkit and how some help from a couple of friends made it possible.
