"3600 Frames" (2010) by Vertna Bradley
From the first of its titular 3600 frames, Vertna Bradley's "3600 Frames" (2010) entrances you with its hypnotizing pattern and flow of flickering photographed images. Accompanied by somber electro-industrial music, this piece will leave each viewer with a unique & complex series of images and questions burned into the mind.
