Several Moments in Time
This music video for autistic hip hoppers would have been better tracked with Whitney Houston's "One Moment in Time" (racing with destiny...), but since Santogold's "Get it Up" was the song I was actually listening to when I saw the light flash from the red light camera it seemed more appropriate. I received the expected before and after red light citation in the mail, but I was surprised to also find a link to a website with video of my car traveling through the intersection. It reminded me of the nature of documentation, its pervasiveness and varied intents...how these images can serve as a both a reason to pay the city $75, and a snapshot of my happiness hurriedly going to the airport to pick up my girl.
