Eric Hattan has worked with video for nearly one decade, evolving a distinct combination of banal subject matter and agile, off-kilter camerawork. His brief loops, one to a monitor, capture the daily choreography of people and things (mostly things), played out in fleeting instances of random beauty, odd coincidence and benign violence that occur at the periphery of vision or consciousness...
...Casual yet oddly concentrated, Mr. Hattan's little vignettes evoke the tradition of street photography and amateur snapshots, as well as Situationist Art's fabled ''drift'' through the urban environment.
