Dialectical Materialism
digital video [14 min. 47 sec.]

This video piece was developed as a part of my Senior Thesis Exhibition at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. The sequence, running almost 15 minutes, is comprised of 4 layers of contrasting imagery.

A male figure & a female figure, shot separately in a very controlled interior environment, is layered with hand held exterior footage, from water & forests to city scapes & industrial areas. All of the relationships, from figure to figure & from figure to ground, were completely imposed by layering the footage.

The entire sequence was slowed down to 1/4 speed & reversed. All of the original audio was kept, mixed & balanced, generating a sort of digital droning, that serves as a sort of white noise that helps to draw the viewer into the imagery.

If you would like to purchase a copy of this, or any other video sequence, please email me at stevesorrentino@hotmail.com.
