About

Made with a grant from the Canada Council: filmed with the help of Ann Knutson. In X, a black line can be perceived as delineation or as a shape in itself. It can also be a slit through which one can feel the background; or it sometimes becomes undifferentiated from one of the areas it delineates when, because of light changes, the areas become black as well. A shape which may seem to cross the frame horizontally can just as well suddenly appear to do so vertically or even go backward and forward in the film space. The rectangle of the screen itself metamorphoses into a trapezoid, temporarily stretching the black mass surrounding it.
