In this piece, Kotcheff explores a temporal ‘zone’ via stop-frame animation and a circular set of eight mirror chambers, here entitled: Hour Glass Machine. Exploring on the one hand, the infinite mirror world, the Mise en Abymes, and on the other, the finite ash. Via the moving image, an ambiguous spatio-temporal dialectic is sifted, which oscillates between two opposing forces: the infinite and the finite, suggesting an eternal accretion, disintegration and transposition.
