This work is a commentary on the medium of video art, and how it’s cinematic idiosyncrasies are exposed when contextualized through the medium of painting. That said: this work is better considered as a painting with kinetic properties, than as video art.

While I want this to be seen as an object, the temporal qualities of video prevented this and so it is seen for its linear expectations rather than its objecthood. These expectations make the work dismissible to me through its predictability, as the chemical reaction communicates immediately that its movement follows a constant set of rules.
