A visual poem wrestling with ideas about love and resurrection, this handmade film uses all of the motifs of the medium: the swish pan, the countdown and the sex scene all make an appearance. Such masters of experimental film as Warhol, Brakhage and Jarman are all quoted. Beginnings and ends are reversed. In the artwork’s initial incarnation, all of the oversized frames were installed as filmstrips in a room to create the appearance of a giant trim bin that the editor/​viewer entered. The conceit was casting the viewer as a Lilliputian editor of an analog film who had to mentally pieced the film” together. In 2015 all the frames were re-shot and animated. There are two versions of the piece: a 17-minute gallery version and a 40-minute slowed down version with a soundtrack by Mary Margaret O’Hara, recorded live during its inaugural viewing.
