Zoran Poposki, Rain, 2020, digital video, stereo, 2:40 minutes.
Rain by award-winning contemporary artist Zoran Poposki FRSA, created during months of self-isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, juxtaposes footage of a rainstorm in a tropical forest landscape with a cut-up poem created out of a positive psychology article. Championed by the beat writer William S. Burroughs and the Dadaists, the cut-up method mixes up the words in the text, thus creating new and often surprising juxtapositions of words and images that can inspire a whole new set of connotative meanings.
