Timeless Fetish is a collaborative video project between Jack Honeysett and myself.
Making this piece we chose images from educational documentaries which use the sensational filmmaking techniques of action and adventure films.
The main character, planet earth, is coming of age. The story, narrated by an “early life form” the earth’s formation from a frozen astrological body to a furtive place, capable of supporting life.
‘Timeless Fetish’ draws parallels between the classical forms of authority and the influence of archetypal imagery, an image which through its framing and abundance is given authority.
