Strange Object

(2020) 15 minutes, HD

The Z Unit’s operation in a world far from our own was an experiment of sorts, a test. And this place, inhabited by beings different from ourselves, served as a laboratory. A successful outcome would secure the Z Unit’s future, enabling its enterprise to expand and its methods to be applied to other worlds.

An investigation into imperial image-making, and destruction.

Strange Object uses aerial photographs of an undisclosed territory as the starting point for a meditation on images, erasure and the writing of history. This is the first part of an ongoing project.
