UK, 1991, 8 minutes
In Forever and Ever we momentarily confront a black screen which a grid makes look like reinforced glass. A shadow glides across the top, a hand appears and begins writing a family register. The action is inverse to the viewer, suggesting displacement and polarisation. Soon water invades the writing, the ink dissolves, fluctuating patterns of blots start to form where the letters float and liquidize - and the hand traces and retraces the words, labouring to retain and reascertain their meaning.
