Scripting to passage to suspension, HDV, 2021, 37 minute loop

This Offscreen installation features moving image and text, art and language, and hypnotic colors, shapes, sounds and silences.

Screening at PLAY/GROUND will be the video/audio/text trilogy Scripting to passage to suspension, a single channel, reformatted triptych by Rebekkah Palov.

This piece of visual poetry invites the viewer to make their own meaning as colorful images and text captivate attention and animate imagination. The trilogy includes: “Scripting” with candy color visuals and narrative fragments, followed by “Passage” with its fun-house aesthetics and textual athletics, and “Suspension Landscape After the Drought” with its sci-fi landscapes, it's a gentle and thoughtfully crafted essay on secrets, self, and social censorship.
