Ends Where It Begins 2011
Video

Heidi Zito’s compositions combine images and events that she has encountered in cinema, video and photographic images and personal experience. The videos emerge from the artist’s painting process and experiment with the displacement of time and space in a single setting.The resulting works are fragments of time and life pieced together to form a dream like state. Zito is interested in working through an idea and processing the images ingrained in our memories. In Sequence of Monotone 2011 a pedestrian performs a walk across the screen. The actual fifteen second event is stretched into a two minute rhythmic dance during which the removed subject reverses and retraces his steps as he selectively reconstructs and remembers a memory.
