Seeking Answers to the greater questions of one's purpose in the universal sense, one must examine the condition of existence it's self.
The answers to the questions 'what is reality, what is love, what is our purpose?' are explored through an examination of what we (as a society) know or have accumulated as a part of our human conscience through science and philosophy we journey to answer the great questions posed by human conscience existence. Often times with surprising conclusions about the nature of reality.
What do these abstract concepts mean? Can they be at all reasonably made practical in our inescapable adverse nature of reality?
In this film David explores the concepts from the vantage point of a human philosopher and a photographer.
Filmed in a area where the rotting decay of a post early 20th century industrialist town surrounded by and being consumed by the natural world in which it was created. Photographically capturing a moment of the lost history of the existence of mans “domination” and “capitalist exploitation” over nature and the perseverance of nature to “take back” all that existed before mans intrusion and before the modern wheels of progress (gentrification) threaten nature and human will again.
Using readings and commentary from several scientific and philosophical minds of our times mixed with visual presentations that are meant to blur the lines between reality and abstract reality as concepts are explored that define the core basis of the film makers core beliefs about existence and purpose.

Director Statement

above all i wish to create relevant, substantive works, that speak to people in such a way that they are moved to look at each other and maybe reality differently. maybe inspire them to change their understanding or their world.
i consider myself more of an editor than a film maker.
