Inertia

INERTIA. Device and residue. Just as an eye blink denies the presence of a specific space or time within a continuum, so a frame freezes a particular place and moment. It is the indivisible unit of the audiovisual mechanism, and its basic inductor is light. Thereby begins a journey that takes us from the real to the represented, finally leading us to that ultimate reality, the document. Inertia deals with the construction of reality. The route is a place and the vector imposes itself on the object. The present then tends to disappear in a continuous movement and what happens is indeed its non-presence. Over its four-minutes length, Inertia responds to the conventions of rhythm, visual axes, and other narrative norms with the rules that we use to assimilate the entire audiovisual spectrum. There occurs a specific accident between the fragile rules of narration and the sophistication of what is staged, confronted with the inescapable physical connotations of gravity, weight, or the volume of the elements in its service.
