Documentary video, like film, is an immersive experience that unfolds over time. Unlike most films and video documentaries, however, most art videos are not embedded with a strong narrative structure. Michel Moyse’s three-channel Motion Painting: Carol Wincenc is a portrait, not a documentary. A world-renowned flutist, Wincenc appears in snippets of an interview with Moyse. An audio track of her flute playing forms a soundscape. Abstract colors and marks—sometimes syncopated, other times melodic, still others contrapuntal—dominate the viewing area. These are Moyse’s brushstrokes, unfolding, overlapping, obscuring, and revealing his vision of Wincenc and her music.
