In this two channel piece, different views of the same geyser are intentionally not synchronized, and the full scene is never revealed.

In one, we see the crusty base: the water grows, quivers, rises, falls, until it suddenly surges and bursts filling the frame with whitish-blue water, only to start the process again.

In the second, the frame stays focused on the sky. Clouds shift and pass, then, without warning, water shoots up either in one big explosion or in a quick succession of smaller outbursts.

By dividing this one location and separating the linked events, time becomes fragmented and new relationships between expectation, anticipation and reward are created.
