DUNG SYI is the Mandarin Word for "thing". It consists of the character for "east" and the character for "west".

In this piece I use my Simultaneous Opposites engine to traverse a section of my 1982 16mm film "Dung Syi" that I'd attached one of my music tracks to.

I like the way situations appear, slowly, and take form as you watch and listen. The center frame between the two ends of the simultaneous opposites loop becomes a temporal focal point, with the length of the loop a temporal depth of field. The flow of the original images is shaken down, and the surfaces and tendencies are brought forward as subject. There is a tenuous existence to these traversals that I find calming.
