There is something hypnotic and absorbing about Overlap’s Running Forest video piece, as a shifting vista of fleeting trees is suggested and promises more substantial detail when stationary, without crystallising enough to resolve into alluded-to forms. Intentionally ambiguous, the accompanying soundtrack enhances the fluid flux of overlapping imagery and motion. For all the embedded movement, when immersed in the work the viewer is invited to step onto a virtual moving platform and to experience the constructed sensation of remaining in a stationary position whilst the surroundings change. As the scenery and sound synchronise, our sensations are disrupted by the evasive yet invasive alien atmosphere and we finally succumb to being lost.
