"I think of David Horvitz‘s beautifully simple iPhone video work, The Distance of a Day, 2013, in which one video, shot in L.A. by the artist’s mother filming a sunset, is shown alongside a sunrise simultaneously shot in the Maldives by Horvitz. The digital can’t do away with physical locality, but it can act to share its contemporary experience."
