Description: Ensconsed in a forested cove behind Thailand‟s first Postal building, the Praisaneeyakan, this program brings together works from across South and South East Asia, and perhaps like its thematic invocations around slowness, technology and hallucination, finds itself floating between and beyond its locational indexes. The films talk to the political and the phenomenological, the microbial and the planetary: a scalar incoherence (un)folding continually.
