Can slow motion offer a new optics? “Slow” is a meditation on slowness and slow motion inspired by artist James Nares and his 2011 film Street. Excerpts of an interview with Nares are interspersed with various slow-related considerations including David Levine’s research on pedestrian speed, Jane Jacobs’s “sidewalk ballet,” Augusto Boal’s slow-motion race, Slow Roll bicyclists, Lorenz Potthast’s decelerator helmet, Alexandra David-Neel and a lung-gom-pa lama, Norway’s “Slow TV,” elephants, Wisdom 2.0, sloths, Frank and Lillian Gilbreth’s time and motion studies, flies and flickering light, radical noticing, the cut-up, and Rudolf Arnheim’s visions and ghosts.
