About

Inspired by a dream of a monkey who tells "stories" by waving a stick that emits abstract shapes, light and movement, this is the "story" of a sculptor making sculpture. It is also a form of dreaming with Cinema. Constructed in lush, layered images, we see sculpture, Jon von Bergen at work but the true subject of this filmic tapestry is the elusive and enigmatic quality of the creative process.
