The video album DING summarizes video works by Alec Crichton from the years 2003-2006. On a conceptual level the album deals with the idea that an artistic practice tends to serve a more unifying than differentiating function, where established symbols and traditional ways of perceiving and understanding may be confused. This effect may be called ‘poetic’ or ‘surreal’ whenever it strengthens an internal unity, where all elements of a work refer to each other, enabling an aesthetic or emotional form of sense, without requiring another significant meaning or an external source for understanding.

This video is cool. You capture a strange blend of serene images and haunting noises. It’s a cool paradox. I like the naturesque vibes you got goin on too. Bravo!
