An index finger tracing a thought, Siri Black, 2021, 9 minutes, 36 seconds
An index finger tracing a thought (2021) is formed around a conversation on how to differentiate between the artificial and the natural. With a focus on the infamous face on Mars, the film attempts to unpick our relationship to a landscape known only from images (of varying resolutions and scales). Local stone markings in the shape of severed heads become the nearest analogue to the surface anomalies on Mars. These heads bear witness, too, to the historic and maybe everlasting anthropomorphism.
Entangled Nightvisions, Aura Satz, 2018, 11 minutes, 54 seconds
Philosopher Johnny Golding ruminates on a formative childhood experience, when her father brought home an early prototype of night vision he was working on for the American Military ‘Project Eyeglass’ (for ARPA – Advanced Research Projects Agency). Shot using corrupted nightvision footage, the film explores Johnny’s interest in quantum physics, entanglement and her philosophy of Radical Matter.
