"The American artist, Sean Waple, is primarily interested in structures and materials - the latter can also be virtual and therefore non-material. In his video, Red Drift, he uses film effects to create a fascinating situation out of an ambiguous scene on a river or lake shore, the meaning of which is not necessarily revealed even after a long period of observation. Technical and organic seem to merge here, an epiphany moment appears and conceals at the same time. The magical atmosphere is underlined by the soundtrack by sound artist Kole Galbraith."
