Abstract
“Moving” opens out of focus as the camera tentatively (and shakily) depicts green foliage covering the orange and white siding of a U-Haul truck. Snapping into focus, Elam records several men moving boxes and furniture as they track across (seemingly) her Logan Square backyard, a popular locale in Elam’s work. From the voyeuristic vantage of her patio, the footage continues shifting focus and accel- and decelerating as the men labor.
