Title: Are You There?
Dir: Bara Palcik
The seven short video and audio pieces I call Are you there? in some ways echo the structure of The Book of Genesis, Seven Days of Creation, only in my video, the seven days seem re-ordered, they float in and out of view in the strange, formless way that time has felt since we began our self-isolation. In the similar way of Day One in the book and its creation of Light, my video starts with joy and laughter, born in that time of innocence when there was no fear of the virus, but after that, it seems the days pass almost in reverse of the Seven Days of Creation. The days in my video drift from lightness into darkness.
