A Ray Array

19. A Ray Array

A Ray Array is a new video directed by Sarah Rara that examines forms of visual and aural interference: from the failure of a message to be discernible, sudden interruptions, visual disturbance, the interaction of two sound signals, instability, and optical effects. Structured like a collection of short stories, the work is composed of 16 video chapters that explore the subject of interference using simple sets, everyday objects, and subtle special effects.

A Ray Array features a soundtrack created by Lucky Dragons.
