Animals in Spirit

A text and moving-image piece inspired by Étienne-Jules Marey’s movement experiments with dogs, hauntology, time, and the spaces between species. Original text is read aloud over the slowed-down film collaged together from archival pieces, creating a kind of meditative live film.

The piece was featured in the Greek magazine Misafir. It was performed at Harvard University, ACLA conference.

Text excerpt:

A vegan point of view collapsing the space between Other and Self fragmented by the city.

The encounter with the animal Other becoming the moment when the human Self is misidentified as a stranger, a ghost in a machine.
