The Kraken

Tasman Richardson

2003, 06:45 minutes, colur/B&W, English


A turbulent voyage into certain oblivion at an infinite scale. The mythical hazards that await us in our passing. Faces and vessels lost at sea, faxed in relay, degrade with each imperfect transmission, each movement through space and time. Waves slowly make an irregular descent through the sound spectrum, resurfacing as fine crystallized shards; the last moments collected from numerous flight recorder decks recovered from the wreckage.
