(and the Crystal Image)

2017 Experimental documentary. 8 min. 

If we can access our past at any given moment, to what extent can we get rid of it and look ahead? What consequences do the access to a digital memory (including access to the words, images and sounds of the horrors of the past) have for post-conflict societies? Can a digital memory become a powerful tool to ignite more profound ethnic hate, violence and war?.

The Crystal Image (Deleuze) describes a moment where a past image becomes fused or confused with its presentness. In the film, postproduction is used as a conceptual tool to «traumatice» the Digital Image itself by using the slit scan  technique. This effect creates images of time-based phenomena by merging different layers of time within a single image. The result is a liquid time, where the present becomes fused with the stream of images from the Google search box.

All the images and sounds are the combinations of the real result from typing the words in the Google search box.
