offcut, the edge by Zhao Qian

Issue 80

The slightly off-kilter images are evocative of the old American TV show The Twilight Zone. With people seeming to appear out of mist, a floating shark, a glimpse into a dressing room, an unfinished meal on a park bench, plastic covered hills, a glowing building on a distant shore – all connect to something odd but interesting. The images ask the viewer to look again, to step closer, to investigate what might be there in that other dimension. Nothing happened. It is so strange.
