Abstract

Originally a painter, Michael Lent turns to the time-based frame with his epistolary collage, October Fire—a daring blend of text, sound and image. Lent formally experiments with layering language, audio, and visuals in a way that evokes the encroaching thickness of smoke. Mixed over hazy beach footage are the reflexive sounds of throat clearing and rustling script pages through which Lent calls our attention to the construction of the work itself and engages us not just in concerns of the historical world but in the difficulty of representing the experience of it.
