The Passing is a personal response to the spiritual extremes of birth and death in the family.

Hatsu Yume First dream by Bill Viola ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Japanese consider the first dream (hatsu yume) of the new year, to be especially portentous. Bill Viola is a video artist concerned with the mystical aspects of physics and optical transformations. Here he plays with perspective and time, making connections between the flow of light and the flow of water. He shows us the cycle of a day that begins in light and ends in light illuminating the darkness, a cycle that metaphorically symbolizes the cycle of time and creation

Bill Viola : the passions by Bill Viola ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his opening essay, John Walsh traces Viola's development as a video artist and the intellectual and spiritual concerns that have preoccupied him over the years. And in "The Artist in His Studio," Walsh offers a rare first-person account of the making of Emergence, a new work commissioned by the Getty for the exhibition. A transcription of a recent conversation between Bill Viola and Hans Belting reveals the roots of Viola's involvement with image making and the role that older works of art have played in his development. Peter Sellars explores the spiritual foundations and meaning of Viola's work in a remarkable essay that is as much meditation as study, while Viola himself selects some fifteen works of art, which, along with pages from his personal notebooks, represent the sources that have inspired the Passions series. Finally, Kira Perov has selected and organized frame sequences from each of the twenty Passions pieces, accompanied by the artist's descriptions. Altogether, Bill Viola: The Passions is a thorough and richly illustrated study of a new and compelling group of works by this seminal contemporary artist."--BOOK JACKET

Anthem by Bill Viola ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anthem is a post-industrial lamentation, built around the single piercing scream of a young girl as she stands in the vast chamber of Union Station in Los Angeles. The scream is extended in time and shifted in frequency to produce a scale of harmonic notes. Overlaid with this are numerous images from our daily environment paralled to the human body--giant oil pumps and the beating of a human heart ; cars on a freeway and blood flowing through veins ; tree branches in an ancient forest and modern surgical technology, all interspersed with the image of the girl screaming

Bill Viola : las pasiones by Bill Viola ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La muestra presenta una serie de doce vídeos realizados por Viola en los últimos tres años, en los que, a través de un estudio riguroso de la gestualidad y una estricta puesta en escena, se revive el misterio de las antiguas tablas medievales y renacentistas sobre la Pasión de Cristo, en un contexto espiritual que no se corresponde al de la época en que fueron creadas, enfrentándose al problema de la representación de las emociones en los rostros y cuerpos de los modelos -actores en el caso de Viola-, que se mueven a cámara lenta, en un espacio íntimo y silencioso, en grandes pantallas planas, similares a pinturas murales, revelando el poder y la complejidad de las expresiones emocionales. Se presenta también "The Crossing", una videoinstalación que muestra la desaparición de la figura humana por la acción de dos fuerzas naturales opuestas, el agua y el fuego
