Program Description

In three distinct sections, images of movements and gestures are captured: Entropy -- Images of a kitchen, with breakfast being prepared and eaten. Close-ups show dishes, cereal, newspaper, and coffee. Control -- A sequence of striking objects is presented — a phone rings, hands clap, and things smash — merging visual and auditory experience. Motive -- A figure jogging, rolling in leaves, and jumping a fence appears in motion then vanishes.
