“Passage” is a non-narrative three-minute repeating film with a discordant soundtrack, originally devised to be viewed as a part of an installation in which perception is partially obstructed by oppositional lights. The resulting intensity of the viewing experience stresses both the mediated image and the contrast between physical and visual space. Depicting glowing, irradiated creatures spinning repeatedly in a spiraling, circular motion, the film’s heavy mediation trivializes and alters memory to render it farcical and amusing, like truth slipping away in favour of a more interesting narrative.
