Glen Fogel at Momenta



Glen Fogel is showing a new magical video [no title given] at Momenta which sort of documents Christian rock warm-up bands at the Billy Graham Crusade in Flushing Meadows Park last summer. There is absolutely no sound, but the imagery which he assembles, in sandwiching layers of waving believers between himself and a giant screen projecting the acts, produces a mesmerizing music of its own, complete with the unavoidable creepy ostinato of zealotry.

Two points of information unrelated to each other: One, the ghost image in the still shown above is in the moving video itself; and two, I thought it more than curious, considering Graham's own racism, that his [acolytes?] all appear here to be people of color.
