Su Rynard

1993, 03:00 minutes, colour, English


A woman patient becomes both the subject and site of an opthalmologist's probe as Signal parallels an eye examination with semaphore codes to suggest that the modern visualizing technology used in science and the military have colonized the body and forever changed the boundaries reached, the vision and the language of the individual self.

Une femme devient à la fois le sujet et l'hote d'une sonde ophtalmologique: Signal simule un examen de la vue à l'aide de signaux sémaphoriques. Selon Rynard, la technologie moderne de visualisation adoptée par les scientifiques et les militaires a envahi le corps et l'ame, repoussant à tout jamais leurs frontières. Les images sont éblouissantes.
