All Night Till Next Morning

Kenneth Doren

1997, 07:00 minutes, colour, English


All Night Till Next Morning embodies a psycho-cybernetic pastiche, a window into a fragmented narrative constructed with obscure camera angles, oblique film projections, pulsating animations, processed audio, and the anxious character development of German expressionist filmmakers. This videotape develops into a contemplation on media and the ebb of life.
This video is inspired by Gypsy folk tales which create the mysticism that mediates the portrayed fear and pain associated with thoughts of our mortality. These proverbs of the past are still circulating and influencing our uses of technologies today. Images of disembodied limbs, candles being repeatedly blown out and lit and nervous fidgeting hands come to attest to our future challenges within the cybernetic society.

Our consciousness is complex. It is mirrored in this foreboding video, where the viewer is taken into the reverie of the producers mind.
