Retreat (2018) comic book published by 2dcloud OUT NOW
Jaakko Pallasvuo, Finland/USA/Germany, 2017, 25m
Mixing crude animation, 3D modeling, and faux filmic textures in a self-reflexive essay on digitally abetted nostalgia, this playful work of fair use pastiche refracts all manner of postmodern touchstones (David Foster Wallace, Talking Heads, Reality Bites) into an aesthetic interrogation of its own methodology, resulting in, to paraphrase one onscreen subject, a critique of a critique of a critique.
By the shipwreck
Of the singular
We have chosen the meaning
Of being numerous.
– George Oppen
