About

"Some Pleasure on the Level of the Source" follows a little girl as she jumps rope, colors a rectangle red, has her eyes covered, sits with her hands in her lap and pushes her hair back sultrily. Greytak's films utilize pictures and words in a haltingly additive fashionn. In the name of "focusing to perception an occurrence or incident that would narmally go unseen," she displays the incremental accumulations that make up meaning... they illustrate on both a literal and literary level certain theorectical texts concerning "the look,""the code,""filmic activity and the narrator/spectator relationship."–Barbara Kruger, Artforum Magazine;Jan 1984.
