The opening interface is an excerpt from a sequence in Rameau’s Nephew by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen (1974) - a fifteen-minute sequence from which key frames have been extracted. In showing the tools that Michael Snow uses, the sequence demonstrates a particular dimension of the artist’s work, which incorporates various materials and media. It also explores possible links between perception and different means of transmitting perception, notably language and technology (in this instance cinema and photography). The objects placed on this table, continually moved by the artist, will act as gateways into the database of the artist’s work and, depending on the grouping, will take you to different sections of the DVD.
