An Undoing of Time

' Another unique image which the camera can yield is reverse motion. When used meaningfully, it does not so much convey a sense of backward movement spatially, but rather an undoing of time.'
Maya Deren

Footnote:
Filmed at Trent Park in October, I'd had in mind for some time that I wanted to make a 'backwards' piece without using footage that was too obvious. The Deren quotation was ideal for the piece, and the soundtrack was made by slowing down a sampled loop of a spray can. Performer is Dominique Bulgin.
