  • Image clusters serve as reflections upon the Newtonian/Cartesian construct of the world of things. An intense and harrowing soundscape employs Hegelian Dialectics synaesthetically fusing the audio with the montage and its meta mise-en-sc¬Źne. Constructing a poetic and intellectual argument, PROBE depicts the alienation towards and destruction of life in this politically charged eco-artistic video. An internal combustion engine s cam shaft rotates in a sea of hot oil pushing a rocket through a field of sperm. Body fuses with machine in this intensely dense video depicting Chappelle s scathing take on the disastrous effects of the Western paradigm.
