Ritual film:Vibrations on the analogue from doomtube on Vimeo.
This video was featured recently in a late night aside, but doomtube added it, and in better HD quality this time as well, to the Hermetic Library video pool. So, here it is again.
“‘There is an overarching theme of decay, physically, in that the digital video is often degraded by computer compression and Analogue recording.’
My films explore having the ‘broken’ thought patterns of the mental health condition termed Schizoaffective Disorder, which I was diagnosed with in 2002. No explicit references are made to this condition within the films, but the sense of unease (and unreality) which the condition brings about is examined. Through the breakdown and disintegration of the images and the erratic illogical narrative of the films, the condition is studied from a personal point of view.
‘We fear the dark because anything could be hiding in it’
This film draws on Esoteric, Occult and Mystic ceremonial Magick practices. Thelemic Rituals are evoked in a garish fractured pulsating explosion of sputum in which the viewers take part.
The film is a Hymn to Pan.” [via]
