/ or is the horizon line just another crack? is a series of three video collages that are embedded in the forward slash that is assumed to exist between the natural and the unnatural. Questioning whether it is possible to produce while seated within the cracks of narrative, I use found drone images as well as a wandering subtext to recount various moments of catastrophe.
This work was originally published as part of the epub what about support and what about struggle on L’Internationale Online.
All the footage used in the videos were found on Public Domain sources. The subtitling texts are inspired by a variety of sources, anchored and beginning in Max Blecher’s Adventures in Immediate Irreality (1936), which I accessed in Turkish in Suat Kemal Angı’s translation.
The video montage was done by my artist friend, Özgür Demirci.
