Metalogue

Peter Rose

(USA, 1996, video, 3:00)

An apparently clerical man delivers a monologue about the phenomenon of time. His theory is illustrated by a framework of images. The same man is visible in each of these, but only one ever actually synchronises with the story – the rest are delayed. In this way, the gestures he uses to support his story create wave-like movements in the frameworks of images that correspond with the “patterns of superior organisation”, in which time itself is revealed. Time is as elusive as the wind, but intangibility does not necessarily exclude fascination. Not even ‘Metalogue’, with its digital display of unfuring shapes needs to be grapsed to be enjoyed.
