Monad by Chris Cohen

(Kate Dollenmayer, 2012, 4 min)

Set to the music of Chris Cohen, Monad samples a small fraction of the thousands of snowflake photomicrographs made over the lifetime of Vermont folk hero Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley, who photographed his first snow crystal in 1885. I combined Bentley’s snowflakes with hand-painted 16mm filmstrips and animated MRI images of my own knee, which I injured while skiing (on snowflakes).
