June 2010: Fort Worth Water Gardens, Texas, US.

sound: Jeff Conoway (drummer Psychic Paramount, NY)

camera: Sikander Khan and Ami Clarke

font: Avenir.

text: Fort Worth Water Gardens, visitor information boards, Logans Run, script adaptation of the novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, Lathe of Heaven, by Ursula Le Guinn: teleflm adaptation, Lewis Carrol: Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

The disjunctive synthesis of ‘and … and … and…’ as the camera slowly pans the topology of the site, happens in much the same way as the text compiles as an aggregate truth from the collection of references found at the site, where both Logan’s Run, and Ursula le Guinn’s novel: Lathe of Heaven, were shot on location.
