"...a rumination, a series of borrowed 'dialogues' out of an ongoing argument with myself. It meanders, mentally and physically, reflecting on the conditions of being human; on transience, consciousness and desire. It uses landscapes as provocations, as sites of contemplation. And between the landscape and the thought, i.e. between the radical presence of the physical world and the idea, there is, more often than not, a distance, disbelief or irony."
"A film about placelessness and Kobland's response to it--to throw the net of his soul wide, wider, over everything. Always two steps ahead of the viewer, the filmmaker weaves together images and sounds that didn't seem to belong together before, resulting in a sprawling work that is part confession, part provocation and part meditation on technology, consumption and spiritual death."
