Sentences is a captivating, hypnotic meditation on the poetics of space and language. In 2019 multidisciplinary artist Sara Magenheimer released Beige Pursuit, a collection of writings that included a poem titled Sentences—which Magenheimer then adapted into this work. The video is a look into the elasticity of architectural and social spaces, drawing on and reanimating text from the poem. Sentences appear on screen, slowly warping and swaying to the music. Magenheimer has manipulated the footage so that it never rests, but rather gradually changes color and shape, reminding us that balance is an illusion and that space, like language, is ever changing.
