Lying Surface (2018)

HD Video, 03:50 mins, 2018

Seemingly mundane cinematic scenes are treated with simple digital effects, exposing subtle mechanics of videography that have been ingrained in our perception
of the screen. Functioning like puns,they make plain the screen as an illusory layer. Displaced subtitles establish an ambiguous narrative, adding a secondary
layer on its surface.
