An essay film that approaches trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum—on what is felt, but never seen. Shifting between planetary macro scales, physical phenomena and individual accounts, the artist considers violence and its workings, class and queerness not through representation, but from within. While pondering the effects of the invisible and the power inherent in shifting violence beyond visibility, the piece simultaneously reflects upon the digital archives and technologies that help shape the contemporary human’s relation to past, present and future.
