Filmed by creating an autonomous mechanical structure, an immersive relationship is fostered, focusing on the flickering of the light. For a fraction of a second, chaos and order coexist. This may create a slight unease, a momentary frustration that could escalate as a dialogue begins, expectations arise, desires aren’t realized, and the politics of control are questioned with the territorial nature of anxiety.
Anxiety acts as an epistemological instrument to disturb one into looking at the crescendos that emerge within people in isolation as we delve deeper into the concrete-jungle induced societal insularity.
