Glass lantern slides dating to the beginning of the 20th century have been collected, digitised and transferred back onto celluloid 35mm slides. Different pairings of images and single shots were edited together to form a film in 200 still images. A text in the off is heard at times in the intervals between the images - fragmented, yet in a state of reflecting on its own becoming of a story:
“I want to find a story. A story in images. Images that carry with them a sense of arrival and onward journey - trace a path, become movement.
To search for images which steer sight towards a threshold. […]” (excerpt from the voice-over)
Each slide magazine consists of 100 diverse images - some quotidian, yet distant, others cryptical. These errant images are divided into 4 unequal sequences - each set being similar to the preceding, yet minimally altered. Hardly perceivable collage-like interventions make the seen a little puzzling - mirrorings, reversals, interventions on architectural elements like tilting, elongation and displacement weave together and interplay. Documentary material intertwines inextricably with fiction so as to question and wonder about reality, its becoming and its invention.
