Year: 2006
Time: 108min
Format: Video (color)
Sound System: Stereo
Synopsis: As the 2005 short video Spine Face refined the themes of The Pearl (2004), Trinity expands upon the aforementioned short’s exploration into the apocryphal texts of the Bible and the martyrdom of St. Peter. Originally began as a piece on the Institute for Hereditary Biology and Racial Hygiene in Frankfurt, Germany, the video, while retaining some of the original concepts, mutated into a digital collage of CGI figures, low-tech animation, found footage, text, and monologues, all probing the poetry of Rimbaud and Carroll, slavery, the Temptation of St. Anthony, the Balkan wars, The Hymn of the Pearl and The Gospel According to Thomas.
