The video FAULT, by Dean Ebben is projected onto the shaped screen of In the House of the Mineral Spirits.It is an evocative video, roughly 7 minutes, in roughly 5 parts. It begins with Dean rolling on a clear, old, wood floor.The soundtrack is both ambient, using the sounds found in the environment and additive and evocative using the jingling and jangling of silverware. As the video progresses, new sounds and new actions surround the newly discovered fault. Bread and water, staff of life, the stuff of memory and the stuff of the present.
