Ross Meckfessel
SPARK FROM A FALLING STAR
Stati Uniti d’America 2023, 21’

A forbidding soundtrack of horns and distorted noise sets the scene in a city symphony of sorts, where shots of grocery store parking lots and dimly lit suburban roads breed atmospheres of low-level menace. At the other extreme, smooth digital renderings promise a shiny, spectral future utopia of clean lines and mirrored grids. Are people transformed people into objects, public spaces to private real estate? In a world of windows and reflections, an alien gaze floats unmoored through the real and virtual alike.
