Editorial Reviews

Manipulating a torrent of fragmented and fractured 1/15th second images, Daniel Reeves choreographs a grid-like mosaic of image and sound bits that builds through the fury of critical mass to a stuttering and dwindling entropy. Lips and closely framed faces that are extracted from Ronald Reagan's hyperbolic star wars speech concerning his fantasies of space based missile defense, bark the control words "power" and "data in a tense mantric litany. These fleeting nanoscale images become steadily smaller, proliferating and accelerating at a frantic pace to repeatedly throng the screen in complex layers of mosaic like transformations. The "Kali Yuga" referred to in the title is the current and final Yuga or age, as outlined in an ancient Vedic Text the Vishnu Purana. This vitiated and corrupt epoch is said to be a time governed by materialism, deceit and malice. The Vedas state that: When urged by their very dispositions, men act cruelly, speak ill of one another and without compunction destroy nature and have no respect for animal life, then we will be in the Kali Yuga. The film is discussed in critical detail in Images de Surface : L'art vidéo Reconsidéré by Christine Ross of McGill University in Montreal. It has been broadcast in the U.S., Italy, Canada and Germany and is included in many museum collections. The work was edited through the Standby Program in New York City and is dedicated to the late artist Barbara Aranofsky Latham, an early video pioneer.
