running time: 24.00 min
Looped Alphabet is an absurdist drama, depicting an enclosed pseudo world and the idea of continuous presence in the flow of information. The story unravels in Sharing space where communication devices are staged as architectural elements of the fictional interior. It addresses the sense of hyper-visibility of information and interaction, and explores verbal expression being increasingly shaped/replaced by the textual expression. By adopting patterns of behavior and language on social media, and performing them in real space, the Sharing space becomes a visualization of linguistic machinery to which the language is subjected in virtuality, and renders physicality as a dimension out of reach.
The main character in Looped Alphabet endeavors to reveal the Alphabet, which would restore conduct in the Sharing space and bring it back to it’s roots, when he finds himself involved deeper and deeper in a hypnotic circle of gossip, schemes, subjective interpretations and power games. The path towards the truth seems lost, until he encounters an unexpected confrontation with himself.
