2018, 3:30 min., 16mm, silent
Ruins imagines a landscape where the past and the present have been expunged, reduced to shadows. Here, in this silent and vacant future, geometric forms and planes of light melt into one another before disappearing into the film grain, lending only glimpses of a whole. A black rectangle floats in space, simultaneously a monolith and a portal. Unlike the shy shapes that open the film, the rectangle asserts itself, repeatedly making its presence known. Like the surface of a perfectly calm ocean, its pitch-black face disturbs us with all that is unknown hidden in its depth.
