I was struck by a humble wooden burial marker in Banff’s old cemetery that cast a shadow like a sundial. In Slowly Glides… the image rotates to keep the shadow in the same position throughout this time-lapse video. I thought of this as an idiosyncratic attempt to halt the progression of climate change. The title is a condensed version of a sundial motto found in the court of The College of Avallon, Yonne, France, and recorded in The Book of Sun-Dials, 1872, by Margaret Scott Gatty.
