Untitled (September 25, 2001: Floors 75 through 110), 2001.
Single-Channel Video.

Edition of 5 + 2 artistís proofs.

Until September 11, 2001, Bob Cmarís office windows looked out on the twin towers of the World Trade Center. This video, framed by the office window, was taken on the first clear day after the attack, when the wind first shifted to reveal the blue sky and puffy clouds above lower Manhattan.

In this video, images of a beautiful sky slowly fade to white, then slowly reappear, giving the piece a living pulse.

View of Untitled as projected at Cornell University's Johnson Museum of Art, week of September 11, 2002:
