What do we see as we move across a landscape and become exposed to the continuous, real flow of a temporal and spatial movement? Hundreds of photographs were taken as snapshots from the window of a train traveling from Chicago to Detroit. They serve as the inspiration for the ephemeral gaze’s exploration. The photographic record of this traveling motion is condensed in a montage, decelerated by slow dissolves, and transformed into a meditative contemplation of an abstracted “landscape in transformation.”

Like a breathing organism, Fritz Hauser’s soundtracks, featuring cymbals and polyphonic singing, expand this intricate, transparent pictorial space. Archaic sound layers unfold in the tidal rhythm of undulations, connecting with the slowly appearing and disappearing images. As a result, our individual memories pertaining to the world of sound and landscape become an active part of the images we hear and the sounds we see
