  • Two seemingly irrelevant camera functions--zoom and focus--were used in the shooting to explore the symbolic meanings of a street lamp and a neon cross. Paradoxical visual realities are shown when zooming in (which produce more detail) and focusing out (which blurs and diminishes detail) are sharing some similar visual properties. The lower frequency layer in the audio is analagous to the zooms and focuse in the video in its waveform, and the layer of raining sound was recorded while the video was shot.
