Building a shimmering effect through a rhythmic collage, images of trees are spun, frozen, colorized and digitized by means of an imaging computer. The soundtrack shifts back and forth between mechanical and natural sounds as the jumping shifts of color and orientation, made possible by the computer, oddly simulate the effects of natural chaotic phenomena. The cumulative effect of the alterations is a dizzying sense of disorientation as nature is transformed and re-constructed through technology.
