Description: This short movie is part of a mixed media artwork of the same name, which also included postcards of Ader crying, sent to mates of his, with the game of the work as a caption. The movie was initially ten mins long, and included Ader rubbing his eyes to produce the tears, but was slash down to three and a half minutes. This shorter ver captures Ader at his most anguished. His face is framed closely. There is no introduction or conclusion, no reason given and no relief from the anguish that is presented.
Description: Shot in his garage-studio, the camera records Ader painstakingly hoisting a huge brick over his head. His figure is harshly lit by two tangles of light bulbs. He suddenly loses control of the brick, crushing one strand of lights. As he again lifts the brick, allowing tension and dread to accrue, the climax seems inevitable—the brick will (and does) fall and terminate the camera’s remaining illumination. Here the movie abruptly ends with the irrevocable logic of consciousness extinguished. This easy cause and result sequence performs a narrative that is startlingly incongruous with its conclusion. The brick is witnessed demolishing the lights, but that seems to be an insufficient explanation for the void of meaning it leaves in the wake of the film’s ending—the blunt finality of another’s death, by implication, creates a related scramble to search language for a disturbing rupture.
