In his first Chicago video, Pinder features a minimal performance by Christopher Edwards, Hay Market Lofts superintendent. The video focuses on the formal elements of scrolling texture in relationship to the 'dead pan' expression of the performer. In a confined environment, Pinder allows for a dialog between the performer and the viewer. In a fractured space composition, both sides of the elevator are on display. The upward mobility references a cycle as we watch the performer rise and return in a balanced meditation.
