Desire on the Surface of the Skin
Approaching film as sensation the director investigates physiological bodily responses that are deeper than reason in this abstract visual poem. The visuals focus on the viscosity of ink staining paper, flowing and troubling the clarity of water. The film compares paper to the surface of skin and studies the textural experience of touch. The soundtrack is made up of field recordings done by the artist.
