Presented as a collection of fragments, the we hear a series of thematically linked but otherwise separate telephone conversations, the intimate details of private lives, relationships, and sexual misadventures. These proto-narratives form the basis for an exploration of the potential for the moving image to explore spaces at once physical, virtual and psychological; attempting to define the space our consciousness occupies as we engage in a virtual space, becoming consciously divided from our physical surroundings. The inherent physical disassociation embodied in distance communication is magnified by the omnipresence of the telecommunication network.
