A short 3min work concerned with phantasmagoria and disorientation in the ether of memory. Its intent is to evoke a texture, or, 'the' texture of memory. To present a visual kaleidoscope through memory itself. Fragmentation.
This is the first work of edited video I have ever created. Influenced by the montage/rhythm theories of Eisenstein; Vertov and his Kino-Eye manifesto; and especially Stan Brakhage, who has influenced me through everything he ever did with a camera lens (and of course, beyond the lens).
About Kino-Eye devotees: Their philosophy on montage-theory states that it is necessary to get out of the circle of ordinary human vision; reality must be recorded not by imitating it, but by broadening the circle ordinarily encompassed by the human eye. It offers the possibility of seeing the living processes in a temporally arbitrary order and following a chosen rhythm. It makes use of all the resources of montage, drawing together and linking the various points of the universe in a chronological or anachronistic order.
