Zero Return (2006)

9 min 44 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

A surreal image of white balloons travelling down a corridor is augmented with brief street scenes and a sonorous score.

"Zero Return was shot on location in Paris and uses a central motif of white balloons traveling down a corridor augmented with sound and refrain images of lights, a trailer and an antique loud speaker. The effect is like a half remembered film and provides the viewer with a non linear narrative without resolution.”
