Untitled (Times Square at Night) by Jamie Denburg

This video captures the moment in which a regular object is transformed and animated under the camera's gaze. Typically lacking in humor, this particular trash bag seems to reject its very nature. While this piece can be seen for what it is (a cell phone video of a trash bag moving in the wind), it is my hope that the work also bring up questions on the nature of consciousness. What does being "alive" mean, exactly? And how does selective observation alter the interpretation of our environment?
