The quiet of the river is disturbed by a canoe. The canoe’s motion causes circular waves in the water, leaving traces of its passing. The waves linger on after the canoe passes, until the wind restores the water back to its normative behavior. The memory of the motion remains after the canoe is gone.

Every time a car drives by on the bridge, its sound can be heard through this gap and then the shadow of the car passing changes the light setting and the shadows through the gap. As a result of the motion of the cars on the bridge, the light atmosphere beneath the bridge changes.
Sunlight reflects off the water of the Yarkon river and onto the walls of the bridge. The motion of the water creates different patterns of light on the bridge.
The wind which causes movement in the water can be heard in the background. The movement of the water is traced on the walls of the bridge by the light reflecting on the bridge.
The entire atmosphere under the bridge changes as a result of the dark spots and the patches of light patterns reflecting from the water.

The frames were taken from the video at every crucial point in which there was a substantial change in the motion (approximately every half a second).
The black marks represent motion. The motion is repetitive and expands and contracts. The motion doesn’t just disappear but rather leaves traces of its existence. Even in the frames that are seemingly “clean”, traces of the black smudges can still be seen.
In some cases the traces fade away over a longer span of time, but many of the traces remain as a background for the movements that follow.
* Traces of an occurrence which remain as part of the scenery once the occurrence has passed.
The “breaths” of the sound (ie. the fraction of a second when no sound is heard) come at intervals when the motion changes drastically.

In order to visually represent the sound of my little brother’s laughter, I categorized the qualities of sound into actions of dragging (the breaths taken between the laughs themselves) and bursts.
I then traced the actions with a flashlight on a black screen. I moved the flashlight in accordance with the rhythm and tempo of the sound.
