30 minutes, BETA SP 2005

This video arose from considerations of darkness; from looking at, for instance, Whistler's "Nocturne" paintings and being attracted to Wanda Koop's "Paintings for Dimly Lit Rooms"; from wanting to see how video (compared with film) handled dark; and finally from the contradiction of darkness as both friend and foe, end and source. The video's separate segments, shot in various locations, ordered episodically, draw us along to a space within.
