Episode #22 (mis_ing)
EPISODE #22 (and the subsequent EPISODE #21 currently being completed) is “a saturated glimpse into a disintegrating nightmare where missing links oscillate and become born between separate worlds”. The film’s visually echoing quality essentially has no beginning or end-or perhaps it’s even missing. The decaying and elusive images interweave, collide and punctuate the surface of the conscious/sub-conscious without complete clarity. ‘Pieces’ of the whole are what is found , as seen in the film’s dense grainy structure which attempts to hold a complete image together without falling into fragmentary abstractness. When some of these components disappear (as in actual sections of the film itself) , we are forced to accept an altered version of the idea of “wholeness”. When these parts re-surface in an alternate reality, we can then direct our attention to ‘what’ or ‘where’ the connections exist.. Only finding lingering threads which may or may not loosely tie together, makes up this incomplete reality. They are interwoven into each other culminating into a birth, which challenges our perceptions of cohesiveness within wholeness.
