“Different as Night and Day,” shot in the Port Lands of Toronto, Canada, examines the disconcerting coexistence of technology and nature. It cycles through three views of two power plants as light and climate transition (cf. Claude Monet’s series of Rouen Cathedral). The views are bridged by long dissolves of smoke streaming from one of the plants. The dissolves are often gorgeous and reminiscent of the Northern Lights, but are composed with images of airborne pollutants (cf. the pollutionenhanced sunsets painted by JMW Turner in the 19th century). “Different as Night and Day” is a dynamic painting.
