Based on footage shot over some four years during intermittent visits to the Spiral Jetty, casting a glance (2007) eschews a documentary approach in favor of one that engages notions of duration and entropy fundamental to Robert Smithson's aesthetic. TEN SKIES (2004) is comprised of ten skyscapes of ten minutes each; 13 LAKES (2004) depicts, also in ten-minute static shot segments, thirteen large lakes from across the United States.  casting a glance, 2007, 11:30amTEN SKIES, 2004, 1:20pm13 LAKES, 2004, 3:30pm   Dia:Beacon TURE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=DAILY; James Benning Film Program Screening
