S.He

1983, 11:02 min, color, sound

Seaman constructs this evocative visual and verbal poem through a collage of image, music and spoken text. Originally shot in Super-8 film, S.He is a lyrical rumination on the dualities of male and female, sound and image, motion and stasis. Seaman shot an industrial landscape from the window of a moving train, isolating the architecture's sculptural elements and subtly altering the images with slowed and staggered motion. Seaman's hypnotic, chanted text is a litany of associative and metaphorical phrases that, through linguistic and symbolic associations, defines the elusive, genderless identity of the title.

Language/Image/Sound: Bill Seaman. Produced at M.I.T. Film Video.
