Sun Catches It All, The

by Hanna, Myrna

Video 1985


'Talking to a Stone uses cinema's dimension of time to explore decay in an urban landscape, accelerating the destruction around us through invisible human intervention. Objects move from the weight of reality to abstract thought; they become fragile, in that we witness their extinction through frame-by-frame manipulation. Hansen uses cinema to take sculpture into the realm of time, where space and form can be manipulated into patterns, returning as Sisyphus to the beginning. The image does not stop on the surface of the screen but draws us into the tactile interior world, sensuously lit to enhance colour and three-dimensional space. Talking to a Stone creates a fragile and illusionistic balance between the forces of creation and destruction in time.' - Laura Hudson, LFMC.
