The video takes it's beginning from an informal translation and transcription (Portuguese to English) of a 1977 interview with the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1920-1977). Lispector's figurative and highly imaginative stories approach the limits of subjectivity in remarkable ways. The piece layers the interview with scenes that were filmed in Sweden during the liminal zone of either 3am during the summer, or 3pm during the winter. The work addresses notions of passivity in relation to creative labor.
