4th collaboration w/ Michael Fleming

from Michael:
What does it mean to be a self-conscious animal? It means to know that one is food for worms. We emerge from nothing, we have a name, an excruciating inner yearning for life and self-expression and with all this yet to die. Man is out of nature and hopelessly in it: he has an awareness of his own splendid uniqueness in that he sticks out of nature with a towering majesty, and yet he goes back into the ground a few feet in order to blindly and dumbly rot and disappear forever. It is a terrifying dilemma to be in and to have to live with. ….Tik-Tak. ×

Jury notes:
"A film that stands out for its intoxicating pace, craftful editing, and masterful use of found footage. Tik-Tak takes us through the journey of a life-cycle, delivered through thrilling juxtaposition and groupings of moving images."  (Kim Kielhofner)

​"An intelligent downer. One direction: decay = erase. Smart and it smarts. Crushed spider. Sound stripe is seen and not heard. Dynamic music. Fitting subject/action groups. Just the right scanning frame. A clear story that hurts/hits real." (Sandy McLennan)
