An Index Finger Tracing a Thought, 2020
Digital video (captioned)
‘An index finger tracing a thought’ is formed around a conversation on how to differentiate between the artificial and the natural. With a focus on the infamous Face on Mars, the film attempts to unpick our relationship to a landscape known only from images (of varying resolutions and scales). Local stone markings in the shape of severed heads become the nearest analogue to the surface anomalies on Mars. These heads bear witness, too, to the historic and maybe everlasting anthropomorphism.
