THE HALFTIME SHOW, 2014. EXCERPT RUNTIME 03:27, ORIGINAL VERSION 13:35. SINGLE CHANNEL VIDEO, FOUR CHANNEL INSTALLATION, HD, COLOR, SOUND. ORIGINAL MUSICAL SCORE BY LEWIS PESACOV.
“The whole video feels mind-altering, maybe like an alien percept or, more likely, like a levitated state of mindfulness and hyper attunement that attends to the interior and the social with an engagement that is paradoxically detached and deeply present.”
“Fleming's anti-spectacle proceeds at a viscous pace as a montage of scenes, each given a sustained stretch of airtime and accompanied by the aural equivalent, a soundtrack of deep, droning tones. No quick cuts here; no driving beat… In this contemplative "Halftime Show," the view, ultimately, is inward, a matter not of attendance, but presence.”
