Sunken Kingdom

1995, 04:21 minutes, colour, English


The tape begins as a structurist piece, extended trucking shot focused on the winter ground a few feet ahead of camera mount, but collapses after a couple of minutes. In that broken space of discontinuity, language briefly emerges.
The second half of the tape is more narrative, the flight of a man running away, leaving, across the bleak, frozen Gardiner Dam on the South Saskatchewan River: a youngish middle-aged man who has assumed or become laden with an unanswerable irrationality of doubtful authenticity.
