Rewind, video with sound, 02:35min, 2011

Rewind explores sound as a crucial narrative devise that prompts a range of emotive reactions in the viewer and propels plot. Yet here, the soundtrack seems out of sync with the geometrically constructed image that alternates between the figures descent and rewound ascent of the stairs. This, combined with the ambiguous text that drifts across the screen, disallows a lucid formation of narrative as we struggle to connect the differing elements to form a coherent whole.”
