David Rothenberg, An Artist, Studies The Pointer

David Rothenberg.

This site came up on my radar recently.  The link above is to a 2005 exhibition where Rothenberg had digital frames hung on the wall.  In each a pointer stands rigid as the background around the dog moves in the wind.  From the site:

Pointers explores a limbo state between moving and static images. Digital video loops made from found 16mm films depict hunting dogs on point, remaining motionless within moving landscapes.

Like taxidermic statues, the pointer’s controlled posture mimics the fate of their prey and the near stillness of a photograph. Impending violence and death is displaced from the frame of the image and suspended in time.
