Lost In Space

Tricia Middleton and Joel Taylor

2003, 11:15 minutes, colour, English


Lost in space explores the periphery and banality of daily life by placing under its microscope the common spaces most might tend to ignore or take for granted. A varied use of images and sounds re-organise the everyday ambiences and ubiquitous moments that would ordinarily pass us by without any special attention at all. Underscored by a sense of dread that never fully subsides, Lost in space wryly ponders environmental and social decay, along with the generalised malaise that accompanies these phenomena, never losing sight of the possibility that death may be the only release from these conditions.
