‘Animal, Vegetable, Mineral is a film concerned with communication across social, spatial and temporal divides. It overlays a mass domestic phenomena of the late victorian era – attempts at communication with the dead in seances – with contemporary habits of watching the media.Central to the work are problematic images of a domestic space, manipulated with textures of contrasting temporal reference. The depiction of an implied context to this material is also reflexive, refusing completion. ‘Otherwordly’ and material sound interventions complicate the apparentness of the image.Animal, Vegetable, Mineral is a fictional assemblage of documentary material, aiming to reflect on growing prophetic currents in the contemnporary zeitgeist.’ – S.C.
