from Russia with Field

Field is an experimental short media art work by Selfburning with sound design by Alexey Devyanin. The piece explores many variant meanings of the Russian word, field. The animator used a typical country field familiar to Russians on which to edit in his notion of a "mystical form transformation".

To my perception this work resonates with mystical messages similarly explored in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you watch this tantalizing work in full screen you will see  a wash of particles sweeping from the left. Then when the camera zooms on to the broken shards you may notice, as I, that the particles appear to leave a smearing wash of distorted words across the almost reflective broken shards.

So, what, if anything, might it mean ?

Perhaps on a metaphorical level its the lightening speed of information and data that wash across our brains from the internets relentlessly transforming and or forming our comprehension of reality, every online minute of the day ?
