Who could have guessed that this film would have been produced at all? This work was created and completed in only 48 hours, to be presented in a film contest initiated by Austin Arthouse Film Festival during the Covid-19 lockdown. The director used the contest’s premise “who could have guessed” and turned it into a question. This inquiry challenged the artist to use his camera as a tool to juxtapose a variety of different perspectives on what ultimately are ordinary objects. The result is three chapters of artwork (temporality, presence, and being) presenting a not linear perception of time and a bent vision of space.
