About

COYOTE is an invocation of the many shady, shifting forms of Coyote, wide dog, Trickster, and smuggler, told in a style that mimics his multifarious shape. COYOTE abandons unified visual style. The narrative is fractured, a blend of documentary and fiction, contradictory voices, myths, and lies. Through a discontinuity between images, between image and text, between textual voices; through a clash of human and non-human voices, fixed meaning is undermined. Contradiction, displacement and disruption force the viewer's participation. Text and image drift in and out of moments of relative, subjective synchronicity. A reading ascribed to a given image will dissolve with the change of accompanying text. As meaning becomes contingent on viewer and context, authorship shifts from video-maker to collective process. COYOTE is an accumulated cacophony of evidence fragments where meanings coagulate in the resonant harmonics of the various voices.
