WHITE ASH is an inexorable dive into edges of consciousness. While grounded in recognizable images and sounds captured from reality, WHITE ASH is designed to scrape through the patina of normal perception, leading to an embodied associational state - something “to the side” of narratives and perceptions.
Pierce meticulously weaves the warp and weft of image and sound leading the viewer into a conscious meditative state. Shooting and then animating thousands of moving camera, handheld, long exposure, digital still photographs into articulations of real spaces and events, Pierce re-articulates and recontextualizes the video by applying the lever of a judiciously and intentionally composed musique-concrète soundtrack.
