David Ferrando Giraut weaves text onto image in an analysis of the absence and the fetishism of the proxy.
' Loss' contemplates absence and the supplanting of a life with images. A narrator’s voice examines a sense of longing, as embodied in relics of recording technology and geological souvenirs, filmed in lush and Noire black-and- white. Memories are reconstituted over the surface of objects which both recreate presence and at the same time underscore a central absence. Yet the object retains its autonomy and its position. The relationship between present and past is blurred in our gaze in the dark – fading in and out; the anthropomorphism of technology glows in the dark, haunting.
