Video artist Dani Levenathal’s 54 Days this Winter 36 Days this Spring for 18 Minutes condenses 9 minutes of each day into a 16 minute video montage of impressions which allow the viewer to create a variety of connections. Or as Levanthal explains, “I complicate and make meaning in editing. I cut two shots together that will provide a third meaning or I lay things side by side according to sound, form, or color.” The film documents the quotidian, on-camera monologues, and performative and expressive vignettes.
