Text is overlaid onto a silent video of a printer spooling out two images – the first a sunset photograph taken by my mother and the second, an image of my studio wall. Both images show the same slanted horizon behind subtitles that describe a gap between the want to give form to a synchronised aesthetic experience and the disappointment of the resultant image. The text narrating the sunset photograph is superimposed across the image of my studio wall and vice versa. The end of the film culminates with the perfect alignment of the two horizons.
