"Images Diffused by Time" appears in the "Frames of Reference" specials "Dance Journeys" and "A Place to Dance." In the latter it is referred to as "Out of Time."

Includes a 2" master of the work and a 3/4" screening copy. See related records for descriptions of videos containing this work. Five folders contain correspondence, magazine articles, expense reports, production notes, purchase orders, scripts, and logs. Color negatives and color and black-and-white photographic prints show the dancers on location.

In "Images Diffused by Time," still photographs and choreographed movements comprise the body of this work by Martha Gray. In this moody work, filmed at Fort Strong on Long Island in Boston Harbor, three dancers (a man and two women) move through the rocky landscape. Against the backdrop of the ruins of the fort, the reaching and curving gestures are lyrical in tone. Susan Dowling works her way down a misty path at the work's completion.

Unidentified classical music accompanies the work.

The women wear light-colored flowing pantsuits and the man wears red pants.
