Barber deconstructs two feature films Blue Lagoon and The Deep, pillaging 'moments' which when re-edited constitute a new totality. A comparison suggests itself with the film collages of American artists Bruce Connor. Barber's astute use of eyeline matches, repeated phrases of dialogue, moments of high anxiety and off screen looks creates a subtext which lay buried in the original films - one of paranoia and anxiety.
