Where there is amenability to paraphrase, where the sheets have never
been rumpled, there poetry, so to speak, has never spent the night. Osip
Mandelstam

White Balance (to think is to forget differences) is an effort to
uncover the geographies of power, the frontiers of privilege. It
revisits this problem from different angles, creating short circuits of
meaning which are hosted by improbable audiovisual matches. Media and
internet footage is intermixed with images shot in downtown Manhattan
before and after the September 11th attacks. The video presents a
question that needs to be visited over and over, a question that is
always and necessarily larger than ourselves. Yvonne Rainer asked this
question in her film Privilege: "...is 'permanent recovering racists'
the most we can ever be?" In this sense, offering a meta narrative that
would pretend to describe the issues at stake, is a failure to
understand the layers of unspeakability that are hidden in the question
of whiteness. The piece opts for a poetic language, an address that
seeks to arouse thought by concentrating on the openings of the
audiovisual experience, in the short-lived moment of the in-between.

Francois Bucher was born in 1972 in Cali, Colombia and lives and works
in New York City. He graduated from The School of the Art Institute of
Chicago in 1999 with an MFA in film (MFA fellowship recipient). From
1999 - 2000 he attended The Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. He

is co editor of Valdez Magazine, Bogotá, Colombia. Bucher has shown his
work in Latin America, the United States and Europe. White Balance (to
think is to forget differences) was funded in part by The New York City
Media Arts Grant of The Jerome Foundation.

Location One (www.location1.org) is a new not-for profit art center,

One is an exploration space for continual creative discovery.
