• The Cholmondely Ladies and Rhythms of the Visible

      Kossoff, Adam (Cardiff: Ffotogallery, 2006)
      Kossoff’s four thousand word essay, “The Cholmondely Ladies” and “Rhythms of the Visible,” looks at how the video work of Harrison and Wood addresses ideas around the frame as a form of representation, and analyzes how this relates to early cinema. Kossoff uses the painting of “The Cholmondely Ladies” (1600-01) to begin the discussion of the frame, both an opening and a closure, in the video art practice of Harrison and Wood. He also maps out a recent development in Harrison and Wood’s work from the static camera to the moving one, which acts as commentary on the course of film evolution and reflects the development of video art in general.
