Description

A meditation on the relatively small amount of time that human beings have lived on the earth, perhaps from the point of view of a machine? Inspirations include: Rachel Carson, John Muir, Aldous Huxley, Raymond Scott, Chantal Akerman, Michelangelo Antonioni (Red Desert and La Notte); Denis Côté (Joy of Man’s Desiring and Bestiaire); Straub-Huillet, Buñuel (The Phantom of Liberty), Edward Burtynsky, John Pfahl, Robinson Jeffers, eco-criticism, speculative science...etc. Read more here at http://filmint.nu/?p=5581(free article.) "Waste" may be read as a coda to my book, "Hoarders, Doomsday Preppers, and the Culture of Apocalypse," but I leave it entirely open to interpretation. I prefer work that invites the audience to co-create, co-author, and collaborate. -- Gwendolyn Audrey Foster For more go to: http://www.gwendolynaudreyfoster.com
