Program Note for IF Only
B/W 7 min., silent

The bubble shaped orb of the human head, perched atop its touchy-feely transport system has seven moist openings through wich everything outside comes in : two eyes, two nostrils, one mouth and two ears. Inside the bubblehead, bubble universes spawn ad infintum and the only passable direction is directly into the steady headwinds of an ever advancing infinity of veils. A high wire bobbing and weawing just to stay upright. These artful if endless veil penetrations are at once the human job description as well as nature's shot at vindicating the transient in the face of the impassive infinite. Nature makes the orifices moist so things can stick, at least momentarily.
And so the intoxicated camera operator shoots the moon slipping through the barren trees. The rabbit hole's light shadow appears and he obliges, head first, no looking back. His cranium (like yours) is packed with illusions, but down the rabbit hole they treasure the same just so long as they're custom fabricated, hand tooled and conscious. Down this hole, stalking the unforeseen non translatable is all. Join in here.
