Created for less than $400, the video art/music duo Vertical Blanking ( ia Kamandalu & Michael J. Masucci) produced this critically acclaimed and pioneering desktop video, which premiered at the 1991 CyberArts International Conference and then latter, to the general public, at LA FreeWaves.
Dramatic and surrealistic, this short was immediately hailed by a diverse group including the independent film scene, performance and video artists and the UFO community.
Before the television show the "X-Files" aired, and before the alleged UFO crash at Roswell became pop culture trivia, this video was among the first artworks to explore the subject of not only Roswell, but alleged alien abductions, and the even more controversial theory of hybridization.
This was among several projects, both video as well as live multi-media, which Vertical Blanking produced on the subject of UFOs.
In preparation for this work, Vertical Blanking did extensive research into evidence of multi-generational abduction experiences on women.
NOTE: the first seconds are silent.
