by spirits seen in a magic lens

Diane Shantz

1997, 06:02 minutes, colour, English


By water, by words spoken in passing.
By gestures, by omens, by visions.
By the voice on the phone and the look on her face.
Each word, every expression becomes a symbol that I struggle to read, interpret, divine. The world becomes a place of signs and portents, where coming events cast their shadows before me.
