This film documents traces that were performed and captured by scanner and monitor surfaces. Other surfaces include paper and film. Light reflects and passes through; layers slide past, and sometimes they meet, punctuated by vibrating, percussive sounds. The film was made with the participation of Samuel Elikem Kwame Nyamuame, a visiting assistant professor in the departments of music and theater at Binghamton University in New York.
