Very (2001) 16mm, color, 3.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

The second, of these companion films (interspersed by a "Technicolor+ countdown") introduces The Movies (Narrative Dramatic Scenes briefly flickering midst hypnogogic-painting) in addition to the closed-eye vision and language combination of Night Mulch. "Subversive" and "Liberating" are repeated, but "Liberating" actually seems to be withdrawing (zooming away) in the mixture of paints. To emphasize The Movies, these is a brief tribute to the actor Michael Caine. The resolution of these contesting 'force-fields; of visual thought (as I imagine them) is a sense of distinction of hypnagogic over and above Photography (or Picture-i. e. a collector of framed named things) as well as the words/names themselves.
