Not in Kansas Anymore, 2017

Jon Glaser

A rustic wooden barn stands in a field of overgrown grass in Teton National Park. It looks rooted to the earth, as if it’s been there for a long time, and will be there for a long time more. But the clouds above are in motion, as if the whole sky is streaming past in sped-up time. The juxtaposition of the dynamic cloudscape and the solid, still barn create a heightened sense of time passing. The artist captured multiple still photographs of this scene, then animated the clouds’ movement inviting us to participate in the image as if we were there.
