What if the truth is a material configuration?
It is true that a material configuration can be formulated, categorized or consumed in countless ways. Does understanding this reality bring us any closer to recognizing truth; material or otherwise?
The film is a kind of visual poem, a particular rhythmic structure is achieved through the cadence of the textual phrasing and the variety and complexity of the image sequences.
This film features a proposition, born from a forced relationship, between two constructs of our own making. These constructs will not be named here, only through viewing the film can they be revealed and understood.
This speculative pairing of framing devices … sees this film move between conflicting dialogues, on a journey to consider the nature of truth. This dichotomy affords a particular form of triangulation with the viewer; seen through two filters, two frames, two ungraspable projections.
There are two integral materials, the first is text; which is formed into phrases, as sequences, forming chapters. The second material is the still image; mostly appearing in fragments, as sequences, forming photographic chapters. Each phrase is embedded into a still image, no moving imagery is seen.
