Storm, “quite simply a video recording of a car ride at night in heavy rain. We look forward to the road ahead, while the noise of the slapping windshield wipers and water hitting the roof surrounds us in a deluge of lush, percussive sound. What you see and hear, you also come to feel in the body: the delicious pleasure of being inside a warm, dry place while all about you nature rages... This is visual art that delivers us from the purely
visual back to the world of the physical experience with all our senses awakened. Instead of bringing us the installation photographic image – or the digitally enhanced photographic simulation – these artists direct us from the world of images to the world of things, inviting us to grapple with them at first hand.”
