Cadence – Tori Foster’s Eternal Rush Hour

Keeping in line with her prolonged interest in representing urban flows, Tori Foster’s Cadence transforms vehicular activity into a four-minute loop of flowing streams of animated electromagnetic flip-discs. Drawing on footage of rush hour from a busy Toronto highway, the display distills individual cars down to their headlights and codifies each vehicle as two vertical ‘pixels’. The four bands of traffic flip along in varying densities and—when read in aggregate—the kinetic installation plays out as a minimalist phase piece.
