Passing through tunnels and foyers; on trains, buses and ferries; in elevators, airports and city streets - transitory environments. Metalogue is a travelogue that uses formal techniques to explore spatio-temporal resonance and phenomena. Interspersed with interludes that combine digital excess, abstracted text and voice reciting information relating to the digital video material, and collages of public announcements. Pursuing the notion that the normally backgrounded or hidden information, instructional, metadata and other quotidian media, rising through the digital database editing logic, becomes part of the poetical structure and language in an intermediate realm between description and material.
