Abstract
"Windows" documents the views of and out from windows around JoAnn Elam's Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago. The first section begins at an El train stop, capturing the station itself and the views of people playing tennis as seen from the moving train. A switch approximately halfway through the runtime moves the action to downtown Chicago's Buckingham Fountain and then Logan Square as filmed through Elam's window screen. The shapes of the buildings finally abstract into geometric forms on film.
