Staring with two of his earlier 16mm film works, Leighton Pierce will take
us through a series of works that progressively crack his sense of normal
time and space. Pierce explores the margins of memory and perception and
the cinematic construction of space and time in order to crack the hold on
normal reality. In his earlier work, unsentimental close views of small
events are rendered in a manner that magnifies their strangeness. More
recently he has developed a complex performative shooting technique,
wherein he shoots thousands of hand-held long exposure digital stills on
location that he then weaves into “video shots” that become the raw
material for reconstructions of experience. In all of his work, Pierce
draws from his deep commitment to the structural meaning potential of
musical and non-musical sound to complete his emotional/temporal
