Set to an urgent techno score, quick-fire bursts of text are superimposed over rapidly changing images, making it impossible to pay attention to both simultaneously – so that the constant feeling is of missing information, of crucial facts being suppressed. The viewer, like the protagonist in the story, must struggle to construct a coherent narrative, intensely aware of coincidences and patterns of significance. In the face of contemporary political structures, the work suggests, such exquisite paranoia amounts almost to an act of creative resistance.
