A full-length experimental video
created from images of Iraq in the aftermath of the First Gulf War.
The source images are time-manipulated using the artist's custom software.
Desert, sky, water, fire and oil flow and blend organically,
mixing like liquids.
Events that actually happened sequentially appear to occur simultaneously.
The drift of images suggest omniscient views of a post-apocalyptic landscape.
With music by Toru Takemitsu and text by C.S.Lewis.
