LS vid1849

In a previous post, we noted that the Lost Signals Collection houses 11,336 audio files, only a fraction of which have been cleared, authorized, restored, tagged, transferred, filed properly, and published here. As far as video goes, the collection is even greater: 23,432 files as of January 1, 2018

Video 1849 was originally not part of that collection, but rather existed in a competitor’s archive, a competitor we have recently absorbed, in the most severe sense of the word. While the video seems all too familiar–the ambiguity regarding diegetic and non-diegetic sound, the nonsensical depiction of nature as malignant, the ominous phone–there lies beneath its surface another video layer, obscure except to those with the proper visual filters.
