I saw this experimental short film on November 30 2005 at the Wexner Center for the Arts on the campus of The Ohio State University. The video was being shown on a continuous loop in a small exhibition room known as "In The Box". I watched a few minutes of it. According to a handout provided by the Wex, the audio portion was taken from an NPR (National Public Radio) interview with a woman whose soldier son (Travis) was killed just after President Bush declared an end to major hostilities in the Iraq war. The video portion was a fluid and changing pattern of abstract colors. Perhaps the movement of the colors was tied in electronically with the mother's voice; I don't know. I found the film rather haunting. I could really pick up on the mother's anguish, and the video portion reinforced that. Recommended if you ever get a chance to see it.
