Seasons change as the installation of Christo and Jeanne-Cluade's "The Gates" gets underway in New York City's Central Park. Ted Ciesielski's "My Gates" is a three-minute, highly-stylized, time-lapse documentary that is more impressionistic than factual. Set to the music of Dikayl Rimmash and Curt Ramm, the short continues Ciesielski's highly personal explorations of cityscapes.
