Glacial Slip

Barbara Sternberg and Rae Davis

2003, 13:00 minutes, colour, English


A pile-up of images - including ice skaters, snowfall in the woods, Nijinsky, dervishes, snatches of Eisenstein, traffic, an avalanche, a dripping faucet - alternates with images of eyes as they listen to a voice describing a devastating medical diagnosis. The build-up of pressure, corresponding to the process of a glacial slip, results in a crucial moment of explosive movement.
