Happenstance (part one of many parts)

1982-83, 6:47 min, b&w, sound

The aesthetically sophisticated use of modest black-and-white image processing in Happenstance relates elegant compositions of basic shapes to a dialogue between spoken and written texts that meditates upon the ephemerality of linguistic meaning: "[Words] sit like deer in a field. If I approach them too quickly, they fade into the quick of things."
