After a moment of brightness, a memory unit containing 59.049 images is explored from the totality to its individual images, creating connections on various levels in various directions in a shifting dynamic system. Beginning with a sudden and rough recall of memories the information merges with increasing compression in several cycles and repetitive feedback to transform in an almost ad infinitum expanding time space topology of intense subtlety. The visual composition is inverted and disrupted several times by visual blanks of bright white. The original images were taken handheld in 2002/3 when the experience of 9/11 still was present. The composition is made frame by frame using “contact sheets” (6, 5 fps). The integration of the outdated format SD in the more contemporary HD leaves empty space in the memory levels and in the processing levels. The memory unit used in this video is the second out of nine units, which will become one total memory at a later stage covering 30 years from 1985 to 2015. The music composed by Michael Bonaventure (organ sounds) and René Baptist Huysmans (electronic sounds) is inspired by the poem “The Comet at Yalbury” by Thomas Hardy ?
