In The Living Need Light, the Dead Need Music, rational constructs of difference begin to fall away. Categories such as fact/fiction, East/West, living/dead, male/female, and past/future disintegrate as the artists inhabit multiple modalities simultaneously and at all times. The Propeller Group collective thus defines the spectrum of the “other” as a flexible construct, granting primacy to shifting vantage point over fixed identity. By operating in the slippages between self and other, the film closes the distance between the two.  The Propeller Group are Creative Capital Awardees.
