Luisa Rabbia, Passing Moods, 2005
In Passing Moods a photograph of a tree is animated with drawings and movies in the background. It creates the feeling of time passing by in a story of life within a beginning and temporary ending. The work plays between animation and stills in which a impassive tree is home for a succession of precarious never ending moments.Luisa Rabbia was born in Italy in 1970 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She was the 2007 Artist-in-Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, MA.
