Abstract
Through a series of pans around what appears to Elam’s Logan Square backyard (a frequent locale in her work), “Winter Garden” meticulously records a fresh blanket of snow. The virgin snow fragilely lies as the camera skims atop recording dead plants and planks of wood that poke through. The majority of pans remains slow; however, as they and the edits increase frequency, the footage jumps in time, showing the garden with foot prints about and the sidewalk shoveled.
