Vermillion Vortex (2010)
An animated film by John Russell film. 22:48 mins
Commissioned by Art Review Magazine, Nov 2010

HEGEMONICALLY DISPLACED. CASH-RICH BUT INFO POOR. TERRORISED BY A
NARRATIVE RETRO-CODED BACKWARDS FROM THE END. UNRAVELLING IN
REVERSE. A JOYFUL ANTI-DIALECTIC ... NOT A SACRIFICE BUT A
PROPHESY: IMMEDIATE, INFINITE, ECSTATIC...VERMILLION VORTEX.
