David Crawford’s “SMS” creates the narrative of the momentary encounter and this work was created to be its distorted mirror. Personal snapshots harvested through keywords by Google have been removed from context and (using basic digital manipulation) new narratives imposed on the moments captured. The progression of the film rocks the viewer gently through two augmented perspectives in a series of 20 images. The people and places are unknown but an intimacy is fabricated and connections between unrelated incidents made.
