Discovering features of the visible world through intersections with the ontology of the camera, extending features of the camera into the sensible space before the camera.
The film is a collaged stone with many facets. Riffing on the idea of the crystal constructions that make up the lens, other crystalline structures are considered as the film activates visible space in a variety of ways, not only using prisms, mirrors and externally positioned lens elements to complicate the visual field, but also refering to film itself as a crystalline entity, receiving light in ways that allow a gorgeous chemical blooming to take place.
The film also considers nature as a series of crystalline entities (organic and inorganic), and moves across a range of figure-ground relationships to merge points of interest within the varied environments presented, finally employing figurative displacement as a perceiving animal (a la "Undergrowth"'s owl) is introduced.
