Single channel video, 3:00, 1997

Over the course of one year, Henricks periodically shot footage from front window of his third floor apartment. This material became the basis of Window/Fenêtre, a video about knowing. How do we come to know a place or a person? Our knowledge comes from more than one unique experience. It is the sum of repetition and variations. Window/Fenêtre shows how a whole can be more than merely the sum of the parts. It is the first in a series of works that explores one of the principle metaphors of video: the window.
