WAX/WANE, (2000), captures an actual, rather one-sided conversation (because of the accidentally captured sound) at a media jam*, part of
at the Western Front.
The video "images" are a result of static patterns produced by the audio. The conversation waxes and wanes, surfacing
up from and sinking into the cacophony of the surrounding din. At once humourous and melancholic, the philisophical musings of
the speaker meander through various significant subjects, (meditations on spirituality and the environment,)
the comprehension of which is compromised by their environment.
* improvised performances of sound and image by artists, filmakers, video artists and musicians.
