Filing is an ongoing project to build up an extensive dictionary of associative visual representation of each single word in a language, as part of an investigation into the field of visual perception.
In this episode there is a telephone message left on an answering machine. Each word spoken is chained to a particular animation representing a personal association for the artist. Because the animations are present only for the short time the word is spoken, they become a ceaseless flow of images; but through repetition of certain words, the audience is given a chance to recognize individual images as they recur and to form their own patterns of association.
