Central Region combines dissolves and superimpositions with ambient sound, exploring gradual shifts of light, and indexing movements and vibrations illuminating the spaces surrounding the stones. The process evokes the spectral way in which standing stones in Sam Neua, though appearing as inert ruins randomly scattered throughout the landscape, powerfully demarcate potent territories of the undead and the nonhuman sovereign. —Tanatchai Bandasak

Central Region

Commissioned by Animistic Apparatus to make a video responding to Southeast Asian animistic practices of communicating with spirits, Tanatchai Bandasak draws inspiration from the presence of prehistoric standing stones in the highlands of Laos.
