Overview

Podworka, Sharon Lockhart, 2009, 31 min., video
No, Sharon Lockhart, 2003, 34 min., 16mm

Podworka observes children in Lodz, Poland, as they transform parking lots, storage units, and other abandoned urban structures into centers of play. Views of a cold and traffic-weary city are brought to life through the children's creative vitality. Described as a landscape painting in real time, No captures the routine labor of a Japanese peasant couple as they methodically bundle hay and spread it out over a field. Lockhart's camera remains still and unchanging throughout, calling into question the relationship between photography and cinema.
