Viewable through a 2" hole in the wall is a video of the sculptural version of Momentary (Jack Tar Hotel, 3 o'clock). The sculpture sits on a workbench in the artist’s studio, mimicking the workspace of sound surveillance expert Gene Hackman in Francis Ford Coppola's seminal 1970's sound-focused film The Conversation. The silent video work slowly zooms to the sculpture's clock face.
